nytimes house and garden - its all about us

the nytimes house and garden section today is all about CA. sparked by the end of the second design biennial at the pasadena museum of california art, the article asks the question "what is california design?" apparently CA's climate and culture are the twin pillars of influence, imbuing designers with the freedom to experiment. basically, a retread of every article ever written about CA's art, design, architecture, etc. the same could even be said (and has been) of CA's tech innovation up north. and like the tech industry, these designers are motivated by a '"weird utopian desire" to do the right thing.' what that truly means is open to interpretation.
