Right now, as the thermometers topple 100 in my hometown, I'm dreaming of Finland. I would start by visiting the works of architect Alvar Aalto. I would also make a stop at the Arabia factory clearance store and Marimekko shops and fill my suitcases for the trip back home.
What about you? If you could travel anywhere to see any design work or learn any design-oriented trade, were would you go? Any plans to make that dream a reality? Or have you already? Let us know in the comments below! If there's lots of feedback, we'll compile the top design destinations and repost them here later this week.
