By now you will, of course, have seen one of Ken Robinson’s TED talks on education and creativity. You might not, however, have seen this one, delivered to the RSA last year, and beautifully animated by Cognitive Media.
It’s good to have people like Ken Robinson out there talking about the things he talks about. I never thought I would become interested in education, but I am. It’s too important and fascinating for me not to be.

Last month I shared with you a cheekily YouTube’d video of BBC 4’s documentary Requiem for Detroit. Perhaps Observer journalist Paul Harris also saw that film when it was broadcast earlier this year, because he reports today (with video) from just one of the nine hundred urban gardens established in Detroit last year.
If you think that number is impressive, then consider this: there still remain approximately 33,000 vacant residential plots of land in Detroit.
Being a novice allotment gardner with more than a few ties to the mid-western United States, a trip to Detroit has never been so tempting.

A few weeks ago I blogged about some of the more memorable and provocative papers delivered at the 2009 RIBA Research Symposium. A highlight for me was the video offered by an absent Dr. Jonathan Charley of Strathclyde University, who couldn’t attend in person. It’s good to now see it up on Youtube, and I’ve also shared it on the blog of a fifth year elective module I’m involved with. You can find out more on ARC8014: ‘Examining Architectural Practice through the lens of Architectural Education’ on that module’s blog: archedlens.wordpress.com
