Speakers Corner: THE JOY of NOT KNOWING

A lecture by Andy Merritt and Paul Smythe Something & Son.

Andy Merritt and Paul Smythe, who both lead Studio 3: Something & Son, introduced this studio by saying: "Something & Son’s Studio Design by Occupation will inspire you to make your own dreams and ideas happen by learning how to occupy space and self initiate projects. By the end of the studio we want you to think of yourself as a much as an entrepreneur or activist as a designer - someone who can have an idea, occupy an interior and bring it to life as something powerful and beautiful."
