Simple Maintenance

A bus jaunt past the contrasting masonry panels of a local apartment building reminded me of janitorial guru Don Aslett's critique of a work of modern archtecture. Aslett counted off the number of different materials that enrich the plain surfaces and observed that each demanded different inventory and procedures for maintenance, not to mention different know-how.


I read a professional inn-keeping maintenance guide and concluded that the more I can standardize furniture and textiles, the easier it will be to live a productive life at home. Digital culture offers a banquet of visual information every time I open up a device. I no longer need high-maintenance physical eye candy -30-
