Many well-respected and notable architects such as Buckminster Fuller, Frei Otto, Ross Lovegrove, Santiago Calatrava and Frank Lloyd Wright were known for their work in this style of design.

Apple-picking

It’s harvest time again in Southern California, and that means apples are ripe for the picking. Before you head to the orchards for some hands-on fruit shopping, follow these common-sense tips and tricks:
