Recognizing Yourself at Home, in Detail

Blog September 24, 2014


Who was it said, “G@d is in the details?”

Oh, yeah. Mies van der Rohe. I thought so but I had to Google to confirm.

There’re a lot of dangling thoughts crowding round my head lately and correctly attributing quotes is one of the more important details of my work. And yes, there’re is a word, a contraction, in my personal dictionary.

Boro Hall

Just like Shakespeare used ta’en, instead of taken, although it’s not a contraction.

FDR Kahn

He, Mies, was also noted to have said something like, “Less is more.” Google says that was originally Robert Browning. Who knew?

Ah, those pesky details.

Rather than go on and on and get all snarky and critical about the problems I personally have with other people’s distinctly incorrect details I’ll show some examples.


You can judge for yourselves.

Design is an iterative process.


What that means for me personally is that we design, test, analyze, test again, re-design, redraw, reconfigure, test, analyze, re-iterate, re-design, analyze, test, and redraw until we get the details just right. It’s no good if the place looks gorgeous and the light switch is hidden behind the door.

Pesky details.

    The Devil is in the detail. The idiom “the devil is in the detail” refers to a catch or mysterious element hidden in the details. Hope you slept well on the plane,, 😉
