I was hit with an epiphany while flying on Hawaiian Air recently. Our Dii January board meeting and tour of the New School of Architecture, its geometric ceiling, and model-making prototype pattern might have something in common with the “lowly” gecko.

Hana Hou inflight magazine covers this amazing creature and its ability to crawl completely upside down without chemical stickiness, and, when caught, to re-generate a tail and slip out of its outer skin as necessary. This mini-reptile is not the slimy character we thought, but an ingenious specimen of molecular geometry designed and evolved for survival. Read on and enjoy!
