Thoughts, finds and inspiration.
Our monthly journal of things that crossed our minds, desks and screens.
Books for Young Architects
We're in the process of recruiting new architect assistants. This will be their first time working in an office and so, to help them, we decided to put together a list of books that they probably won't have read at university.

I just want to make something

One of the big benefits of being based in a co-working office (as we are in Bristol) is that you get to meet interesting people. Sam Dawson is a filmmaker and sits next to Adam. This is his entry for a recent competition entitled 'In your element'.
The Illusion of Rejection
We recently came second in the race to win a really good project. Although being rejected was tough, as it always is, Andy explains why we celebrated.
The Design of Childhood
How the material world shapes independent kids. This important new book is about to be published and will be of great interest to parents and designers alike.
Sandwiches by Lord Sandwich
We are really pleased that the next phase of our work at Grade I listed Mapperton in Dorset is now complete. The conversion of the stables to a new cafe and wedding venue opened to the public at the start of the month.

Are you looking to start or grow a business? If so, it turns out that these 9 rules for starting a farm will also apply to you. Must be something to do with growing and nurturing things.
We like to keep things simple. The KISS principle is a favourite of ours. But life is often complex and in order for us to find simple solutions, we have to 'court complexity'. This article from 'Onbeing' is a good reference point.

Do One Thing Well 
We love a good list. Especially when there are pictures involved. This Summer 2018 list of the best products and services by Hiut Denim scores on both counts.
Enjoyed this? We're trying to spread the word about Raise. If you know somebody who might like to hear from us each month, how about forwarding this email on to them?
It would be much appreciated!

Forward to a friend.
