"Today, I have found a few words, and I’m more able to reflect on this current moment and what it says about Blackness and architecture in America. In short, they are inextricably linked," writes architect and educator Sekou Cooke (@sekou21) in an essay. Read more at the link in our bio.⠀

We ask questions about how to meaningfully and responsibly decolonise the art sector, how to rebuild relationships with nature, and how to repurpose materials – building from ruins and the wake of contemporary conflict. •
Summer is right around the corner and trails are slowly starting to open up here at home. 🌞 Of course this year, it's more important than ever to enjoy the places we play responsibly. In preparation, I wrote a blog post about the 10 essentials you should always have when you hit the trail. Whether you're going on a short day hike, or camping deep in the backcountry, you never know when one of these simple pieces of gear might save your life! Or at least make you a lot more comfortable. 🤗 Check out the link in my story to read!

▸ the reason why i’m posting these text graphics is bc it’s how i feel in this v moment and i’m open to sharing it. i will not be able to just go in and edit what i wrote. people need to not regret how they feel but to embrace the idea of changing thru education. i’ve learned a lot this morning just from my one post and the dialogue in the comments vs what i learned all day yesterday scrolling thru an endless feed of black boxes.
প্রকৃতিতে ভারসাম্য ফিরবে সবুজ ফিরলেই, আবার নতুন করে হাসবে পৃথিবী। দূষণ কমানো, গাছ লাগানো, শক্তির অপচয় কমানো আমাদের ছোট ছোট এমন কিছু কাজেই সহজেই আমরা পৃথিবীটাকে আরও সুন্দর করতে পারি! আরও এভাবেই কি আমরা পৃথিবীতে ফেরাতে পারি সবুজ? আপনার মতামত জানান কমেন্টে!

; carpets, as soft as the skies
The busyness of the old city outside sounded of horses, cars, and rickshaws all blurred together like a school of fish in the ocean.
Vendors on the street-sides were selling fruits, tea towels, and all kinds of other things while the scent of a cooking stew hung in the air.
There was a deep hum of silence that day, and you followed it. You slipped through the congested crowds of a busy Friday afternoon, all getting their business dealt with before the adhan was heard.
A mosque sat in the distance, with green trees shrouding the entrance like a garden. A woman with a girl on her lap sat on the steps, lost in her world.
Wazir Khan Mosque was known for its richly embellished frescoes, adorned in the styles of Mughal and Punjabi traditions. From the Persian flowers to the Cypress trees, intricately drawn on the walls and the ceilings, the cool Lime bricks kept this haven in the center of the old city's bazaars.
This place had a history, built during the Mughal rule of Shah Jahan - famously known for his commission of the Taj Mahal.
The silence has a sound, and you hear it. Sayings of the Prophet from the Qur'an floated above as you entered the mosque's center, the coolness of the floor was comforting more than it was chilling.
The courtyard of the masjid felt as empty as ever. A tomb sat on one side, with a huddle of kids playing a game with a coin.
In the center sat a large pool filled with water for ablution.
And from the corner of your eyes, you see a man taking carpets out of a cart and laying them on the floor, a boy helping him with the labour.
In his silence, he greets you with a smile and suddenly you're stirred in endless conversation. A haven filtering centuries of travellers from the mid-1600s to now, and here you stand with someone looking to continue its life.
Birds began to murmur above, making rounds around the mosque now and then from one end to another.
It was peaceful, warm, and there were a few laughs too. Like the colours of the carpets, as soft as the skies, the sun brought down a couple shades too. The deep hum was louder than silence, ready to call the world home.
