what is [architecture]?

last week i had the opportunity to do something i’ve wanted to do for a while, host a trivia night.

now this wasn’t your normal trivia night, one of my friends who is in charge of the aia emerging professionals, wanted to put together a trivia night for all the young architects in town.  as an added bonus we invited the local graphic designers to participate as well.  not only did this keep our group from “geeking” out the entire night over architecture, but it mixed in some new and interesting facts.

talking with everyone who attend, the night was a huge success.  a good time was had by all and several new friendships were made.  thinking most people who follow this blog are into architecture or design, i thought i’d share a few of the questions, and see if anyone new the answers.

- who said, "less is more"
-what famous los angeles building is featured in the last scene of "500 days of summer."
-how many pica in 1 inch
-what is the name given to carved, full length female figures used like columns in classical architecture.
-name the four colors in process printing.
-how many square feet are in one acre.

congratulations to the winning team picture above in the first annual archi-design-trivia night.
