Blogging With Springboard – Vinyl Record Architect, Museum Architect, and Open Space Open Thinking
As some of you know, Springboard’s Paul Rosenblatt ‘moonlights’ as the ‘Vinyl Record Architect,’ a Top 20 worldwide blogger on vinyl record collecting, crate digging – and a little architecture. Since November, 2008, Paul has been sharing his music related tales with an ever increasing audience of fellow music lovers and fans of vinyl records. Questions like ‘Why are vinyl records cool, but vinyl siding is not?’ have been considered. Obscure bands that never sold many records but put out some great music are celebrated. Guilty pleasures abound. Check out blog.vinylrecordarchitect.com.
Recently, the success of Vinyl Record Architect has led to the establishment of two new blogs:
One blog, simply called ‘Museum Architect’, gives us a chance to reflect on current events and trends in the museum planning and design world. www.museumarchitect.org.
The other blog, Open Space Open Thinking, is a collaboration with architect Steve Quick. OSOT is a project focused on exploring the most innovative and successful approaches to reusing open space and vacant lots in urban settings. www.openspaceopenthinking.com.
Please check out one and all and let us know what you think.
