Meraki: in Greek, the quality of doing something fully, completely, putting the whole of yourself into it. Doing whatever you are doing with your heart and soul. This could be the cheesiest #wordoftheweek ever... or not, given how often one feels disconnected from what he or she does. The picture is a XIX century engraving by Tardieu which is supposed to represent a Greek gymnasium 'after Vitruvius' (from Voyage du Jeune Anacharsis en Grece, 1825). While it's not necessarily believable from the archaeological point of view, it is still a pretty neat project; it is very simple, but it manages to put together nature and artifice, greenery and architecture, bodily presence and formal ambitions. Enough of an encouragement to make architecture with meraki this coming week.
