Amish Barn Raisin Timelapse

My definition of design has evolved over the past few years and along side the projects and clients I have worked with. Some of the most integral parts of design or design practice as I would now define those is as follows. Good design is nearly always is built on a foundation of planning, organization(really just more planning), and the team. This morning I came across this 10 house time-lapse of an Amish barn raising and it got me thinking on this subject. Shot in Ohio by Scott Miller this video captures and embodies in my mind perfection in the practice of design.

    I met a gentleman at Sheffield Day who hired a team of Amish Barn Raisers who raised an entire barn in 3 days
    They brought all the necessary tools, all the materials and found their own local accommodations.
