We first heard about Slow Home at this year’s CA Boom design show. We have since been following Canadian architect and Slow Home creator John Brown’s daily lectures on construction/demolition, real estate, and architecture. Taking his philosophy from the ever popular “slow food” movement, John often compares urban sprawl to fast food excess. He stresses the importance of quality products over mass production and emphasizes making better choices about how and where we live. Through daily exercises Brown’s site tackles common issues faced when updating and remodeling. The site features room by room design breakdowns, case studies, and an extensive archive of past exercises. Inspired by this site, we can now attempt to tackle some of the more ominous design challenges facing LA living with a little more confidence.

    Thanks for posting this article. I’m decidedly frustrated with struggling to search out pertinent and rational comment on this matter. Everybody now goes to the very far extremes to either drive home their viewpoint that either: everyone else in the planet is wrong, or two that everyone but them does not really understand the situation. Many thanks for your succinct, relevant insight.
