The Design Addiction

Hey over there!

It has been a while since I have posted for the last time but I am back! This time with a very architectural post. A post full of thoughts about design, lines and aesthetics. 

Design. What a word!
While I was writing this post I was trying very hard to give a definition! I couldn't, so I started searching on google. So I found this:

Design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object or a system (as in architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit diagrams and sewing patterns).[1] Design has different connotations in different fields (see design disciplines below). In some cases the direct construction of an object (as in pottery, engineering, management, cowboy coding and graphic design) is also considered to be design. More formally design has been defined as follows. (noun) a specification of an object, manifested by an agent, intended to accomplish goals, in a particular environment, using a set of primitive components, satisfying a set of requirements, subject to constraints; (verb, transitive) to create a design, in an environment (where the designer operates)[2]

Well for me it was not enough! In my opinion you can not describe with words what design is. You can just show it with pictures. Thats what I did! Panathenaic stadium was the perfect place to give an example about true and long lasting  desing and aesthetic.

The Panathenaic Stadium or Panathinaiko, is an athletic stadium in Athens that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Reconstructed from the remains of an ancient Greek stadium, the Panathenaic is the only major stadium in the world built entirely of white marble and is one of the oldest in the world. The stadium was built long before dimensions for athletics venues were standardized, and its track and layout follow the ancient hairpin-like model. It could once seat about 80,000 spectators on fifty rows of marble steps and currently holds 45,000 spectators. For sure one of the best historical monuments in Athens and an example of what design means. As you know my aesthetic is kind of more moderm and minimalistic but still I can not pass the fact that this is a true piece of art.

My acne boots were my partner in crime. I also chose a Hugo Boss pair of pants and a Zara shirt with a kind of modern pattern. My design research for sure will not end here! I can feel the hunger for more design hunt! And don't forget ladies and gentleman, fashion is still a kind of design!

Until next time keep rocking.

See you soon,
