"It’s a shame that the phrase "tempest in a teacup" is tied to the idea of triviality. It would otherwise wonderfully describe how designed objects each contain a cacophony of stories. The essays in Share Document demonstrate that point. They illuminate how objects like surfboards, refrigerators, books, and bike lanes can be understood quite differently when their context is revealed to us.

By contributing these essays, the writers in this book have graciously granted us access into the thinking that goes into their practice. In doing so, they have provided us with a cross-section of design-thinking at this moment in Portland. They have given us a ticket into their world. It’s our job to enjoy the ride.”
