Editorial 3—Holiday Moods
‘Tis the season for different moods—and the designs and architectures that help create them. From dusting off the traditional ornaments to sipping hot cocoa from that designer mug, from embracing crowded tourist cities to escaping to snowed-in cabins, each element involved tells the story of a certain state of mind. Our third editorial explores these different feelings, focusing on questions related to getting away and getting in the spirit. Through the FestiveNESS Advent Calendar, we take an eclectic look at design, compiling a series of playful objects and ideas that add some cheerfulness to the holiday scroll. Alongside critical questions on building for tourism, travel, and unwinding, this holiday period is explored in its many facets.
