There are a couple of ends of this melarky. There is design, we need it for flyers, websites, and generally just getting businesses marketed so they can get the sales they need…then there is the extreme end of design, which I believe becomes art.
It’s a joy to see this in action and even more of a joy to be part of, and even inside of…
You guessed it, we are once again venturing to Disneyworld.
Disney pays attention to the details that no other company can afford to, they believe those details matter, and sometimes they do.
A few years back we found an unbelievably cheap holiday online. It was going to one of the premium disneyworld hotels, and didn’t cost very much at all. I wish we hadn’t gone on that holiday to that hotel. It changed my mind.
I ramble of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge (I’ll spare you the details of onsite facilities) This is beyond Disney, beyond architecture and becomes something else completely. I’m sure nobody else cares, but there is something about this place that took root in my soul and just wont leave, I dream of this place weekly, it has become the home of my happy…(its going to get hippy-er, bare with me)
The level of detail brings me to tears. Everything has been researched, thought about and built with perfection. From the guy who says ‘Welcome Home’ when you pull in to the carpark, to the subtle music, the authentic planting, the african Art and the oaky woody smells they pump around the building.
Joe Rhode I believe was responsible for this fusion of wonders, he hasn’t created a hotel, it’s an experience, some form of ultimate design or art that you live inside and take with you everywhere.
As usual there is no summary or ending to this blog posting, as usual its a rant. I just thought it was worth exploring the ultimate end of what design can get you.
Of course nobody can afford such majestic wonders, but imagine if you could, and the beautiful things you could create…
