5 Hours Deep Wrap Up. Today concludes both my road trip around central Maine and my guest curation of the American Guide IG. I’m grateful to Erin Chapman and Tom McNamara of @americanguide for lending me the keys. Its always nice to have a motivation to consider the experience of place and share it with others. As always I recommend folks check out theamericanguide.org for a collective look at America’s cultural landscape; part travel, part documentary, all American. Follow @americanguide

Sunset on Kingsbury Pond, Kingsbury, ME. People often say the summer is too short. But the fall is really way too short; mid-state Maine is already experiencing peak foliage. Get it while you can… #americanguide #sunset #landscape

Five Hours Deep. Camille and I are headed five hours north to the deep woods of Maine. We’ll be exploring the “‘back’ back roads” of the Pine Tree State for the American Guide IG. Per usual, I’ll be nerding out on landscapes, with a focus on the fantastic feedback loop between  culture and ecology within “deep woods” Maine. For this particular American Guide field report, we’ll be traveling the roads way less traveled.  I will not be double posting, so please follow @americanguide if interested. #5hoursdeep by #davidbuckleyborden  for #americanguide

Fun. Wish I could attend:  Gross Max (E. Hooftman) talk on Thursday at ISGM on the 25th in Boston. Tickets still available. RE-POST:
“Eelco Hoofan and Bridget Baines, are founding partners of GROSS. MAX. landscape architects, Edinburgh. The firm’s current projects include a master plan to transform Tempelhof Freiheit, Berlin, from a 360-hectare airport into a new public park, and a linear park representing an artificial mountain range in the Central Business District of Beijing. GROSS MAX is fucking great. Landscape Lectures begin at 7pm.” #landarch #land8 #grossmax #landscapearchitecture

Client visit, one year post install. My favorite residential design element is certainly the firepit. No need to complicate it: four granite blocks with opposing  2 inch “flicker slits” to throw ambient light on field of pea-stone. Field tested and client approved.  #landarch #firepit #pryodesign

The Wild West at BDGA exhibition is now down and I just want to wrap up the project and say “thank you” to everyone who made this installation possible. The project was a great creative experience and an inspiring case study for ecology-based, research-driven art and design.

Finally, all remaining collaborative prints from the exhibition are now available for sale on the Bodega site here: http://bit.ly/1wiJkmd
… And check out the latest show @bdgastore featuring @soems and company if you get the chance. #wildwestatbdga #ecology #landscape

I’ve never fully subscribed to the “Buy American” movement; frankly there’s countless landfills of poor quality American made/designed products. I always thought that the movement’s frame should be tighten up a bit…such as, Buy Quality American” or “Support America’s quality economy or one day wake up to a Walmart only world.” If there’s one local pop-up event that embodies the high-craft ethos of American-made industry its American Field. In its third year, American Field now calls the Innovation and Design Building home. In addition to the 100 American-made brands that will be on site, there’s a variety of culturally relevant programming planned for the weekend including demonstrations, workshops, speaker series, music, food trucks, and good old fashioned American public drinking in the  beer garden…Two days of inspiring opportunities for all you Bostonian makers, designers, craftspeople, artists, and creative entrepreneurs. And its Free. See you on the field. Thank you @maryelewey and @americanfield
