THAT’S What JPEG Stands For???


We had a lot of trouble in architecture “school.” A real lack of consistent–not to mention clear–linguistic sensibility. Half the professors kept on using phrases like post-matricial deconstruction of the pre-planar strata while the other half discussed body, mesh, and the body mesh. If only we’d had the recently launched Graphic Design Glossary to help us out, we might have had a bit more luck when we were asked to choke the raster on the 300dpi keyline and save to jpg. To think, if we’d only had the glossary, we could be junior assistant assistant architecting. For shame.
