Can you imagine trying to build a “Dome” structure like the one in my photo using text as the ONLY form of communication? Can you imagine the results? How about imagining the CEO of a company or the President of a country that used only text to communicate? 🤔 😜 I think we all have heard of a certain President of a country that uses Twitter a lot...which is like a one-sided text. 🙄😜
Have you ever had someone misunderstand/misinterpret the texts you sent them? Can you imagine what it would be like if text was your ONLY form of communication with someone? Text is the absolute worst form of communication there is and relationships can easily fall apart over it. There is no body language or facial expressions to see, and no tone of voice to hear. There is the lack of being able to clarify your texts quickly, because you didn’t even realize your texts were misinterpreted to begin with until it was too late. There is a lack of being able to ask questions and receive clarification quickly. You will assume you have interpreted the meaning correctly but in reality you jump to conclusions, have the wrong thoughts running through your mind, because you didn’t interpret it correctly. There is the ability for the other person to be evasive and conveniently ignore your questions, or simply forget to answer a question because they are texting many people and reading the texts too fast; therefore, not comprehending everything. I could go on and on and on...
The proof of text being the worst form of communication would be when you are together (in person) and you get along great without any issues whatsoever; however, when apart it seems to all fall apart....imagine that. 😜
Good communication is the key to every good relationship that you have with family, friends, co-workers, etc... Text is only okay when used with other forms of communication such as the phone, in-person, video calls, etc...

The Rhinebeck area is alive with art: whether in painted form, gastronomically, dance, sound or textural. Today at ‘T’ Space in Rhinebeck brought together almost every sensory aesthetic in celebration of a ground breaking. Famed architect #stevenholl
welcomed friends & family to fabulous autumnal outdoor hike around the grounds & a delicious orange hue themed luncheon. Afterwards, a dancer led us through the wood onto where the new library will constructed. Steven performed a ceremony purifying the grounds before the construction continues. It was a privilege to be included and to know this great space is abt an 8 minute drive from the village of Rhinebeck.
Special thanks to @susanwides

Location: Tuborg Havnevej, 2900 Hellerup, Denmark
Area: 25000.0 m2
Project year: 2017
Danish studio CEBRA has redesigned a science centre in Copenhagen, adding a shimmering copper-clad staircase that represents the structure of a DNA strand.
A stacked configuration of staggered rectilinear volumes that are offset from a brick plinth expresses the various functions of the internal programme.
The brick base was preserved from the original building, providing a tangible representation of the connection between past and future, as well as between natural science and engineering.
The upper volumes are clad with lightweight aluminium panels featuring a perforated pattern based on the way air and fluid behave when they encounter resistance.
Another element intended to reaffirm the building's scientific remit is the dramatic copper-clad Helix staircase, which is located just inside the entrance and can be seen by passersby on the street.
"The staircase ensures a good internal flow and creates coherence between the floors," said Nielsen. "At the same time, it substantiates the building's scientific focus."
"During a workshop with Jakob Bohr, professor at DTU Nanotech, we were inspired to work with the stairs as an abstract version of the DNA strand's structure," the architect continued. "And so, the idea for the Helix staircase was born."
