Happy Holidays from DnA

One of the great privileges of hosting or producing a radio show at KCRW is the opportunity it provides to talk to really interesting people. So it is in that spirit of gratitude that I urge you to listen to today’s DnA, where you will find a mix of penetrating insight, humor and savoir-faire delivered to you from guests Marty Kaplan; Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan; and De LaB’s Marissa Gluck, Alissa Walker, Haily Zaki and Erin Cullerton

The show takes a look back at the year of tumult (protests, economic unease, creative landscape being transformed online) as it relates to design and architecture, and looks forward to making the most of the holidays, without driving oneself to distraction. Simon and Jonathan’s recommendations: Give everyone the same, great gift, and don’t watch upbeat movies!

With that, I’d like to thank all of you who have followed DnA this year. I,  and all of us who produce the show,  so appreciate it. Please keep me posted about what you’ve liked, disliked, or would like to hear more about in future. And have a very Happy Holiday!

    I for one appreciate the nod to social movements this show offered. Design is so much more than appearances. It's about how we exist as social and political beings. The meaning of design gets reimagined when the public discourse gets shifted to issues of inequality. I find it interesting that many in the design community have nothing to say on these issues as if they weren't relevant. That demonstrates how commodified and cut-off from politics design disciplines have become. In this light, it would be interesting to have a segment talking to Occupy Design or The Storefront for Art and Architecture and their efforts to "occupy" in their own ways via design and public action. Think back to all of that architecture and design that was linked to social and political movements of one sort or another.
