Quote of the Day: Rethinking Gehry


From an LA Times description of Jon Platt’s redesign of Frank Gehry’s Schnabel House, which he purchased four years ago:

Simple tasks such as replacing fluorescent light bulbs with LEDs were accompanied by massive undertakings, such as centralizing and consolidating the home’s climate controls, TVs, lighting and security cameras onto one technologically advanced system, now managed by eight iPads.

Platt’s house now requires eight iPads to control? Damn.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
