An architecture and design writer based in the Bay Area, Lydia Lee was previously the San Francisco editor of The Architect’s Newspaper. She penned “Ripple Effect,” a story on a playful garden—complete with a slide—designed by Monica Viarengo for a family in San Francisco’s Mission District. “The pebble-mosaic hardscaping is wonderfully intricate and textured,” Lee says. “It’s great to see this traditional technique resurface in a modern garden.”

“Camping in Mojave National Preserve in Southern California—spectacular sand dunes, forests of Joshua trees, and a rare sense of utter solitude.”
