What do you wear to interview one of the most stylist people in the state? That's the question that's been plaguing me since I found out I will be sitting across from the dazzling designer Trina Turk for the 2012 Design San Francisco Keynote.
The imaginative vignettes at San Francsico's Dzine always mix the latest in European design with owner Cardenio Petrucci's ingenious styling sense (think rotary phones and bundled newspapers).

From the arch to air conditioning, the 100 Ideas that Changed Architecture are at once brilliant, funny and full of "well, yeah, I never thought of it that way before" moments.
