The Concept Republik

Introduction to the Republik.  We sometimes perceive architecture, art, and design as a collection of intangible ideas, behind a wall, and inaccessible.  My goal with The Concept Republik, Wanderlust’s companion blog which is devoted to architecture / design concepts / ideas, is to chip away at that proverbial wall and in doing so, show how design surrounds and influences us.  Click here to access it.


“There is nothing more interesting than a wall behind which something is happening.” ― Victor Hugo
