I’m an architect and that’s not a secret. I see design and art in everything I do. A few days ago I wrote an article on my site about the connection between sailors, designers and food. I want to open up the discussion here on Get Wet Sailing. Is there a connection between sailors, designers and food? Here’s the article below.
Architects, Sailors and Chefs…What’s the Connection? Or Is There a Real Connection? Seeing as I am all three, (ehem…maybe not a “professional” chef) and I enjoy all three things, for years I thought it was just me. As I have grown older, and become more involved in all three activities, I met others who had the same interests and connections as I do. That got me thinking…I wonder if there is a connection between at least two of the three or all three. Here’s what I have come up with. Let me know if you can think of anything else.
1. Architects and Sailors
The similarities between these in some respects are quite obvious. Both are mathematical. Both deal with angles. The angle of a roof line is something I deal with everyday, so is the angle of how I trim my sails, or at which point I want to tack. It’s all very calculated and exact. If I miss a degree in a drawing, it could reek havoc on the entire building. If I tack on a certain angle that could mean a huge win or loss in the race. Similar thinking, I say yes.
2. Sailors and Food–
3. Architects and Food–
That’s it. Those are my conclusions to why there is a connection between sailors, designers and food? Do you know a someone who enjoys all three? Or do you enjoy all three?No tags for this post.
