Weekend Links

What are your plans this weekend? We're going to a baby shower, and then hopefully the weather in the Bay Area will be warm enough for swimming. Here's some stuff from around the web we enjoyed reading this week.

A new exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt highlights the design of America's Jazz Age.

Some photos of neo-futurist architecture in Asmara, Eritrea's capital and newly designated UNESCO world heritage site. 

An "Essay on Craft" by Ocean Vuong.

Dystopia is the new realism (or maybe it's the other way around...).

A new collection of letters by Rachel Carson explore the connections between art and science.

This week's must read for everyone: The Uninhabitable Earth.
