but where do you hang pictures? 

Probably best known by his album covers for 70s progressive rock band Yes (and its subsequent permutation Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe), Roger Dean is an artist who has now turned his focus to architecture. That's always a frightening proposition. However, he has completed a few works, and I have to admit they're intriguing.

According to his website, his visionary methods started with a college project to design a child's bed; a noble task indeed. I think he was quite accurate in his findings that children crave comfort and safety, love to be enclosed, and like a space that is suited to their own scale. That's why kids love tents and forts and bunkbeds and cubbies.

I would love to have the means (time, expertise, money, and space) to design my own kids' bedrooms for them. They would be the coolest. In the meanwhile, I guess I'll have to be content with building them forts out of chairs, blankets, and pillows before I leave for work.
