I can’t wait to get this. I remember when these Building Stories first appeared in Nest magazine so long ago. (via It’s Nice That : WOW, aka a preview of Chris Ware’s new and very brilliant magnum opus, Building Stories)

Some things that I love about Inquiry Education:
- Pleasure in problem solving
- Self-confidence in student’s learning ability
- Avoidance of telling students what they “ought to know”.
- Talk with students mostly by questioning (and do not accept short, simple answers to questions).
- Encourage students to interact directly with each other without judgement.
- Do not plan the exact direction of lessons in advance and allow for the curriculum to develop in response to students’ interests.
- Students being GOOD LEARNERS is a goal.
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

I wish I could get my hands on all of these books by Ed Ruscha. They would quickly become some of my favorite treasures.
Ed Ruscha’s ThirtyFour Parking Lots (1967)
I saw this piece in the Blanton Museum of Art today here in Austin, TX. Really fun to look at in person. The space markings in empty parking lots look like stitches in the asphalt.

It’s time again to sharpen your pencils and dust off the old slide rule. While you’re still on the waitlist for your favorite professor’s class, crack open a book from our series called Conversations with Students — almost a dozen books that reveal the pedagogy of some of the most revered architects and designers of the 20th century. This ever-expanding series includes lectures, workshops, and interviews from the likes of Louis Kahn, Mies van der Rohe, and Paul Rand.

Louis C.K. in response to this question:
AVC: One of the things that’s interesting and unusual about your career, especially for a comedian, is that you’re deeply interested and invested in the business, technical,and artistic elements of everything you do, not just the creative side.
LCK: Well, it’s all so interesting. It’s all so goddamn interesting. It really is. I love knowing why I was able to sell out in one town, and why I wasn’t in another town. I love knowing what goes into everything—the economics, the technical aspect, and how to create the ideas in the show. It’s great. If you can have access to all of that, why the fuck would you not want to know? I just love learning. I think learning is how you live. The verb of my life is learning.
