“The Architectís Newspaper is my new favorite design publication. Itís a 16-page tabloid that comes out about twice a month. Itís literate and timely, a fast-paced collection of news, reviews and opinion from voices as various as Michael Sorkin, Peter Slatin and Craig Konyk, all beautifully designed (in two ruthlessly efficient colors) by Martin Perrin. And, best of all, it has a gossip column. Last month, they published a piece by Michael McDonough, the accomplished New York-based architect, writer and teacher, called ‘The Top 10 Things They Never Taught Me in Design School.’ I read lots of these kinds of things (and even written a few myself), but I found McDonoughís not just entertaining but actually quite useful, and valid for nearly any kind of design discipline. He has graciously given us permission to reprint it here at Design Observer.”
