All About Middles

@ VOL 19 ON SEP 20, 2013

Benny Kaplan very comically details his relationship with the concept of "the middle" and how it has found its way into his everyday life. Either being a middle child, the center of attention, or talking about the middle between two breads in a waffle iron, he's all about middles!

Creating Special Places

Justin Martinez with a passion for renovation, talks about his past projects with the purpose of challenging people to think about buildings in the same way they think about books: for what is on the inside rather than its surface.

Live for the Thrill

@ VOL 19 ON SEP 20, 2013

Mike Maloney, creator and owner of Kota Longboards, gives a thought provoking talk that would make you want to buy a longboard right after! In a single longboard, you can see function, art, and style coexisting as one and in a single ride you can feel confident, courageous, and the thrill all at once. Through his company, he hopes to encourage people to be the adventurer inside of us all. As the companies motto states, "It's your life, crave it!"

Materials Innovation through Failure

@ VOL 19 ON SEP 20, 2013

Mike Moore of Tres Bird Workshop, talks about his approach to architecture and design through "making": a process that allows him to fail and continually improve on his work. He shows this process in action through his past and recent projects and how it has transfromed his work into innovative and environmentally conscious architectural design.

Stairway to Interaction

@ VOL 19 ON SEP 20, 2013

Rezan Pranata talks about his project for how people can walk up and down stairs better or have more fun doing it. You probably aready know the "make stairs into a piano" idea. But his idea involves more senses than just hearing. Pranata designs a new way to do stairs that would encourage you to walk up and down them 110 times a day at least!
