I dont think many of the peeps who read this blog are actually in St. Louis, but that's fine. We're holding an Apple Break tonight. Maybe you dont know what that means... I'm not sure its ever been entirely explained.

Apple Break came out of a realization last semester that 1) architecture students are much too stressed and 2) there are too many unused, public spaces on campuses and in cities that could use some bonafide lovin'. We spend too much time inside and that makes us a bit cranky; it keeps us away from plazas and streetcorners.

So, our response was to institute something akin to a cigarette break sans the lung cancer. The point is to take a short break from whatever work needs to be done in order to gain a little mental clarity.

In other words, we had some apples on hand and a desire for procrastination and so, Apple Break was born.

Now, we make posters.

It's starting to become a world-wide phenomenon. So, perhaps, you should take part. It's quite simple. All you need is friends, apples (or anything?), and an underused public space. The rest, my friends, is history.

upcycle, please

Do you also take these public spaces out for a little dinner with candlelight?
