Chip Kidd says, "everything that is not made by nature is designed by someone." This statement is actually pretty obvious, but I'd never really thought about it before, and I find it pretty interesting to think about. Though architecture is generally very different from books, there can be some connections.
This image is from the botanical gardens. I don't really know what it means but it reminds me of some Little House on the Prairie type thing.
The second image is also from the gardens. It is a fire engine so obviously it reminds me of books and stories having to do with that idea.
My third image is of a bridge in the gardens. Bridges are often symbolic in literature and are used in many, many books--i.e. Bridge to Terabithia.
