More Crouwel/Vignelli For Your Monday

Just as we thought we had last week’s AIGA NY Wim CrouwelMassimo Vignelli event all covered, turns out even more wit and wisdom has emerged. Michael Brenner over at DESIGNY has a wrap up of the evening, including images of some of the work discussed (very nice investigative work).

AIGA NY also put together these awesome Proust Questionnaires which Crouwel and Vignelli both answered, and in which we learn that they both have some serious architect-worship. Crouwel names Norman Foster as one of his real-life heroes; Vignelli names Mies van der Rohe. And if given a chance to do it again, they would both come back as architects. Hey, it’s not too late, guys.

The Coudal, Fried and Segura Trio

After a crowd-pleasing performance at the 2006 SXSW conference, the hit-making duo of Jim Coudal and Jason Fried have added a little Carlos Segura to the mix for the upcoming Seed Conference, to be held October 29 in the fair city of Chicago.

“Design, Entrepreneurship & Inspiration” is the theme, and we really can’t think of a better three people to deliver it. Bonus: A lunchtime talk by public radio host Edward Lifson, who will discuss the Mies van der Rohe campus of IIT. Maybe he’ll even play the Mies music video that he absolutely did not make.

This architectural primer on Mies van der Rohe is valuable, if only to educate the thousands of people who pronounce his name wrong. Once attributed to Chicago Public Radio host Edward Lifson (why?), The Architect’s Newspaper has tracked down the real creator.
