Today, we’re joined by Winnie da Silva, a business coach focused on leadership development and enhanced team performance. Winnie’s portfolio consists of a wide range of business leaders, including many in the architecture and design professions. Her background in social work shaped her holistic coaching style leading to enhanced team dynamics and company culture. As organizations restructure themselves to the post-pandemic hybrid workplace, Winnie’s insights into the future of leadership and work-life balance will be more important than ever. Listen to Winnie speak about which characteristics she often observes in strong teams, efficient team members, and effective leaders. There is a shared responsibility mindset that causes individuals of all levels to be aligned on the value of what makes them a team. Winnie describes the balance needed to maintain a modern work environment and explores the benefits of teams that embrace diversity of thought and experience. Her thoughts on work environments encourage a positive view of interdependent work for a solid team.

The Future of Sustainable Infrastructure Sustainability focuses on how we as people coexist with the planet. What does it take to build designs in an adaptive capacity? As professionals of the built environment, we have the expertise to guide design to a path that benefits the planet and society. Welcome to the inaugural season of Architecture 5 10 20! I’m your host, Guy Geier, Managing Partner of FXCollaborative Architects in New York. Guests from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences related to the built environment will come to share their thought leadership. Our conversations will start with understanding how they arrived at what they’re doing now. More importantly, we will focus on discussing their vision for the future, looking out 5, 10, and 20 years. Today, we’re joined by Fiona Cousins, the Arup’s Americas Region Chair, and a sustainability specialist whose leadership in energy efficiency and resilient high-performance building design has shaped both public and private environmental policy. Fiona’s career in mechanical engineering has allowed her to provide a deeper insight into the importance of improved building systems and adaptive infrastructure. As achieving the highest level of sustainability becomes ubiquitous in the design and construction industry, Fiona’s experience and her vision of the future of the built environment can inspire further transformation. Listen to Fiona speak about designing with resilience and adaptive capacity for the triple bottom line of economic, environmental, and social impacts. Design constraints around projects became more complicated as society demanded intentional, impact-driven spaces. Design criteria is not limited to a “nice” building, but the process now questions the ripple effect of design choices. Fiona points out how this is especially true in a city-based project as she recalls the thrilling and challenging process for completing Fulton Street Station in New York City. As the design process evolves, how can we promote and advance the existing sustainability metrics to address tomorrow today? Fiona’s work is a testament to the need to approach environmental change at the individual and systemic levels simultaneously. Larger sustainability goals must be met through enhanced interdisciplinary collaboration, resulting in not only the preservation of humanity, but also, of the planet.   Time stamps: [01:43] - Fiona Cousins talks about paving her path as an engineer when there weren’t many women in the field. [04:35] - How did Fiona start working with sustainability? [06:42] - Fiona gives her thoughts on pay-back-calculations when including sustainability in building designs. [09:17] - Listen to Fiona proudly talk about the collaborative efforts to complete the Fulton Street Station in NYC. [12:05] - What is the impact we can make as experts of the built environment? [14:21] - Sustainability focuses on how we as people coexist with the planet. [16:20] - Fiona discusses resilience and adaptation in architecture that needs to be responsive to the environment. [18:08] - Social issues also really matter in design criteria alongside environmental impact. [19:53] - How important is the LEED accreditation system? [22:22] - Fiona explores the connection between sustainability and digital tools to improve measurements. [24:42] - You lose and gain information throughout the design process. Listen to Fiona describe how this happens. [27:29] - What does it mean to “go deep” on your craft? [29:31] - Develop a commitment to learning. [31:08] - Thank you Fiona for reminding us of the need to approach environmental change individually and systematically.   Links / Resources: Guy Geier Instagram   Fiona Cousins

WYB Shorts 7 - Process empathy People.
For better or worse a lot of the topics in EA and BPM center around people. These are the reasons why we do things (customers who pay for our goods and services), who does the work (employees and partners), or why processes and architectures even exist in the first place.
In this What's Your Baseline Shorts, we are talking about process empathy:

What does it take to facilitate the development of a human-centric process model?
What kinds of things should you think about, and when in the process?
What does it mean to have people-focused processes?
What are Customer Journeys?
How can we use the methodology of Customer Journey Mapping to make more human-sustainable processes?

56. Designing Small Spaces | Bo Sundius of Bunch Design I’m joined by Bo Sundius, the owner of Bunch Design. His latest project, the Stop Making Sense Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), explores how you can make a small space feel big. ADUs are 1,200 square foot houses built on an existing single family home property. The space must include a kitchen, bathroom, and a bedroom. Bo highlights that this format allows for some income flexibility that can really help middle class dreams come true, provide a space to help care for aging parents, and respond to the housing crisis in California. Bo walks us through his firm’s typical design process and how they went about designing this specific project. His approach is to think outside of the box, literally and figuratively, and imagine the space from the inside out. Making an 800-to-1,200 square foot home feel expansive and airy isn’t necessarily about the construction, but rather cognition. His design includes vaulted ceilings, skylights, and minimal corners. Growing up in a home that was built on land and water, it’s no surprise that Bo rejects the idea of cookie cutter houses. We talk about trends of pre-design without prefabrication, his thoughts about the sustainability of venture capital-driven innovation in design and construction, and the reality of 3D printed homes. We also touch on the future of property development in light of historical and recent economic booms and busts. About the Guest:Bo Sundius is the owner of Bunch Design, the Los Angeles-based design firm he founded with his wife Hisako Ichiki. Bunch Design’s work crosses product, building and urban scales and has appeared in a wide range of publications, including the Los Angeles Times and Dwell Magazine. Previously, he worked at Jerde and at Roto Architects, both in Los Angeles. He is a graduate of Brown University and Sci-Arc.Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn, or on your favorite podcast platform. Topics Covered:How Bo’s unique childhood home changed his perspective on the possibilities of architecture Bo’s non-traditional college and career path Background on Bunch Design, the firm that he started with his wifeThe pros and cons of ADUs The ripple effect of living in more adaptive and intuitive spaces Challenges and opportunities in 3D printed homes Ways to create flexibility in single-family homes and work environments About Your Host“Atif Qadir is the Founder & CEO of REDIST, a technology company making it easy for commercial real estate professionals to find and use the $100B of real estate incentives given out every year in the US.”Resources and LinksBo Sundius’ LinkedInBunch Design WebsiteGrab our exclusive guide Seven Tips on How to Stand Out in Your FieldLearn more on the American Building websiteFollow us on InstagramConnect with Atif Qadir on LinkedInLearn more about Michael GravesLearn more about REDISTLearn more about the Alzheimer's Foundation of America
126. Moving Beyond the Post-Colonial and the Mythological West with Martino Stierli This week, we talk with Martino Stierli, MOMA’s Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design, about MOMA’s current exhibition entitled The Project of Independence: Architectures of Decolonization in South Asia, 1947–1985.
Jess Murphy - Gender Gap Our guest in this episode is Doctor Jess Murphy who is the convenor of the Champions of Change architecture group, which was formed in 2015 to address the acute underrepresentation of women in the senior levels of the architecture profession at the time. The Architecture Group now has 14 practices actively participating to increase the representation and influence of women at the highest levels of the profession. Jess shares how important it is for practices to be transparent about what’s happening with regards to gender equity, the change that can come from formal and informal leadership, and the effect that the systems inherent in architecture have on people that lead to so many people leaving the profession. The interview is conducted by Sally Hsu who is an EmAGN representative based in New South Wales.
Amanda Baillieu from Archiboo In this episode, we discussed:
Why people are losing interest in picture-perfect architecture porn, and what opportunities that creates for architects to show a bit more depth and vulnerability in their communications.
Why you should set aside a portion of your marketing budget for activities and content that will help the general public understand the value of what architects do, even if it isn’t targeted directly to potential clients.
How architects can use writing, podcasts and video to tell the stories behind their projects in new and exciting ways.
How Amanda would allocate her marketing budget if she was starting an architecture firm today.

Del Lumanta (Artist Profile) Del Lumanta is an artist, musician, DJ, educator and organiser living and working on Eora Country. Their expansive practice moves between genres and mediums, explored under pseudonyms and collaborative projects.

Fellow DIY and experimental musician Emma Ramsay takes a deep dive into the internal and lateral workings of Del Lumanta's sonic practice in Out of Field: The Sonic Practice of Del Lumanta published on LA’s online journal Disclaimer. Ramsay's profile traces Lumanta’s experimental roots within Sydney's community radio and DIY communities and underscores the way in which their incessant development of band projects and collaborations provides a freedom of movement in process and approach, to discard and pick up new creative processes at whim.

Today on the podcast, Del Lumanta talks through how field recordings became a part of their music production, the affect of performance contexts within both institutions and the diy scene, and their work within community projects such as New Age Noise and Radio Skid Row.

Ep. 24 - Task Mining & RPA: Kevin Scully and Ziv Ilan Task Mining and RPA are things that are often overlooked when looking at Process Mining. This can leave a big hole in the discovered process and therefore create an incomplete analysis result.
In today's podcast we are speaking with Kevin Scully and Ziv Ilan from Nintex Kryon about Task Mining, what results you can expect from it, and how those can be used to automate processes using Robotics Task Automation.
Kevin has 35+ years' experience leading and supporting GTM strategy for SMB enterprises. He's a hands-on, team player who excels at defining value propositions, building customer success stories, and increasing revenue. Kevin's main focus is supporting both software and hardware manufacturers who provide advanced technology solutions that help their clients streamline operations, improve customer experience, and reduce costs.
Ziv is Kryon's Head of Professional Services and Alliances, based in Paris. He has a military background and 11 years of experience in consulting. Today he focusses on improving processes by discovering what users *really* do using task mining, and then automating these processes using Robotics Process Automation.
We are talking about the following topics:

Kevin’s and Ziv’s background
What are RPA and RPD (Task Mining) and what are the outputs from Task Mining
The process/steps of a Task Mining project
RPA projects and what can be included - End-to-End from Process Discovery to RPA
Common questions about RPD/RPA
Where do you see this technology evolve?
How to get started with RPD/RPA?

Both of our guests can be found on LinkedIn - Kevin Scully, Ziv Ilan. You can also have a look at Kryon's website to learn more about RPD and RPA, as well as reaching out to them via that channel.

Architecture Practice: Suffering is Optional "Pain is inevitable. Suffering is Optional" (Murakami, 2008).There will be challenges. Such as when a critic gives feedback to the student or the company director comments on the designer's work. There could be 'pain' inflicted, perhaps of the emotional kind. And there could be many of these. However, that is part of the process of learning. How does one take it? Give up on the challenge or keep on going?  © 2022 Talk Architecture, Author: Naziaty Mohd Yaacob Photo (artwork): Cheryl Yew and the critics during interim crit in 2018-19 session by Naziaty Mohd Yaacob

That relationship continues today.For over three decades, Duane has been dedicated to elevating professionalism in the construction industry. He believes the key ingredients to success are continual learning, strategic planning, collaboration with like minded peers, and the elimination of egos.Listen in as Duane gives the secrets behind Alair’s success in the homebuilding and renovation industry, and explains the ins-and-outs of the company’s unique franchise model.Topics Discussed:[03:25] Working with Alair Homes[13:43] Running a better contracting business[19:52] Learning from Blair McDaniel, founder of Alair Homes[21:50] Overcoming preconceived notions about the Alair’s franchise model[24:41] The right way to demonstrate transparency as a business[26:29] Staying consistent across all of Alair’s locations[34:52] What’s next for Alair[39:44] The value of working in the trades[45:17] Duane’s biggest fear for the next ten years[50:26] Providing more education on the business side of the building industry[53:32] Lessons learned from working with ultra-wealthy clients[55:08] What Duane is most proud ofConnect with Duane Johns:Website Podcast - https://www.buildernuggets.com/Website Alair Homes Charlotte - http://www.alairhomes.com/charlotte/Website Alair Homes - https://www.alairhomes.comInstagram - https://www.instagram.com/buildernuggets/Instagram Alair Homes Charlotte - https://www.instagram.com/alairhomescharlotte/Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/buildernuggetsLinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/duanejohns/Connect with Build Magazine:Website - https://rebrand.ly/bmwebInstagram - https://rebrand.ly/bmigwebFacebook - https://rebrand.ly/bmfbwebKey Quotes by Duane Johns:It’s very easy, as a builder or remodeler, to think that way. In other words, you really start thinking, “I’m a craftsman,” or, “I’m a builder,” when at the end of the day, we’re businesspeople.It doesn’t matter the size of the business or the type of business—the problems are the same.People are very passionate in this industry. I love this industry. It’s a very rewarding industry. But it’s a very fragmented industry. There are a lot of people throwing stuff against the wall trying to figure things out. They might be passionate about the building side or the relationship side; but, when it comes to the behind-the-scenes side, [...] I haven’t found a builder yet that likes that stuff.

We’re right in the middle: We can service everybody.One thing that you’re paying for with a brand like LEICHT is that there is a team of engineers doing R&D to make sure that the door panel above your oven doesn’t delaminate after 15 years because of the steam that comes out of your steam oven.[Our perfect client] is the person that knows how to live.One thing that LEICHT does very well is that their upper management is not disconnected from the blue-collar workers⁠—their staff.

Jenny Hickinbotham: Sticks And Stones Will Break My Bones, But Words Can Totally Destroy My Mind! Jenny Hickinbotham is an artist working across writing, video, sculpture, and songs. Sticks and Stones will break my bones, But Words Can Totally Destroy My Mind! took place at Blindside Gallery for Liquid Architecture’s Sound Series exhibition in April 2022. The exhibition featured a series of experimental song-poems, performed unaccompanied by the artist in her home, in Gisborne, regional Victoria, and presented in video form in collaboration with Joel Stern and Carmen Sibha-Keiso. In these performances Hickinbotham inhabits multiple voices, perspectives and temporalities as she explores the epigenetic impacts of trauma, and the narratives of individuals swept up by the force of history, institutions, and the places in which they live.

Here, Hickinbotham reflects on the exhibition and performances, the influence of childhood experiences and hearing voices, and the freedom that song writing provided. Throughout this episode Hickinbotham’s songs also feature the musicians Steph Treesea, Mish Szhekelyhidi, James Rushford, and Sam Pankhurst.

Catherine Ryan: Krell and the Destruction of Worlds How can we wrap our heads around the inevitability of planetary and civilisational collapse? What can the history of experimental electronic music and the fate of an extinct alien species teach us about living with chaos and destruction?

Bringing together performative musicology and electronic music synthesis, Ryan addresses a pressing feeling that structures our age: the existential terror many of us feel when we contemplate how human-made climate change is transforming the regular cycles of life on our planet, rendering a familiar world unfamiliar.

Catherine Ryan expands on the converging influences that informed Krell and the Destruction of Worlds, how humour can open up conversations around confronting topics, and the possibilities that emerge through the multidisciplinary structure of performance lectures.

This episode features music by Bebe and Louis Barron from the film Forbidden Planet and Catherine Ryan.

Raja Kirik (Ritual Community Music) Folk, Noise, Electronics, Improvisation – how can radical music help us manifest new possibilities for thinking and imagine new ways of organising community through ritual behaviours, actions and languages?

Today on the podcast Raja Kirik talks through the origins of their collaboration, the practice of bringing traditional Jaranan trance dance into a modern context, and their way of embodying music.

Raja Kirik is a venture through trance dances from east and central Java, Indonesia. Hand built instruments fuse with high energy programmed sounds, producing hammering, transcendental walls of rhythm and texture. With frantic, seemingly endless forward momentum, the music of Raja Kirik inhabits a wide emotional breadth, cycling from disappointment to anger to loneliness.

On Friday the 10th of June, Raja Kirik will play live at The Toff alongside Rama Parwata, Female Wizard and special guests for Liquid Architecture's Ritual Community Music series.

John DeFerrari and Douglas Peter Sefton, "Sixteenth Street NW: Washington, DC's Avenue of Ambitions" (Georgetown UP, 2022) Sixteenth Street NW in Washington, DC, has been called the Avenue of the Presidents, Executive Avenue, and the Avenue of Churches. From the front door of the White House, this north-south artery runs through the middle of the District and extends just past its border with Maryland. The street is as central to the cityscape as it is to DC's history and culture.In Sixteenth Street NW: Washington, DC's Avenue of Ambitions (Georgetown UP, 2022), John DeFerrari and Douglas Peter Sefton depict the social and architectural history of the street and immediate neighborhoods, inviting readers to explore how the push and pull between ordinary Washingtonians and powerful elites has shaped the corridor ― and the city. This highly illustrated book features notable buildings along Sixteenth Street and recounts colorful stories of those who lived, worked, and worshipped there. Maps offer readers an opportunity to create self-guided tours of the places and people that have defined this main thoroughfare over time.What readers will find is that both then and now, Sixteenth Street NW has been shaped by a diverse array of people and communities. The street, and the book, feature a range of sites ― from Black Lives Matter Plaza to the White House, from mansions and rowhomes to apartment buildings, from Meridian Hill (Malcolm X) Park with its drum circles to Rock Creek Park with its tennis tournaments, and from hotels to houses of worship. Sixteenth Street, NW reveals a cross section of Washington, DC, that shows the vibrant makeup of our nation's capital.Bryan Toepfer, AIA, NCARB, CAPM is the Principal Architect for TOEPFER Architecture, PLLC, an Architecture firm specializing in Residential Architecture and Virtual Reality.

Stephen M. Wheeler and Christina D. Rosan, "Reimagining Sustainable Cities: Strategies for Designing Greener, Healthier, More Equitable Communities" (U California Press, 2021) What would it take to make urban places greener, more affordable, more equitable, and healthier for everyone? In recent years, cities have stepped up efforts to address climate and sustainability crises. But progress has not been fast enough or gone deep enough. If communities are to thrive in the future, we need to quickly imagine and implement an entirely new approach to urban development: one that is centered on equity and rethinks social, political, and economic systems as well as urban designs. With attention to this need for structural change, Reimagining Sustainable Cities advocates for a community-informed model of racially, economically, and socially just cities and regions. The book aims to rethink urban sustainability for a new era.In Reimagining Sustainable Cities: Strategies for Designing Greener, Healthier, More Equitable Communities (U California Press, 2021), Stephen M. Wheeler and Christina D. Rosan ask big-picture questions of interest to readers worldwide: How do we get to carbon neutrality? How do we adapt to a climate-changed world? How can we create affordable, inclusive, and equitable cities? While many books dwell on the analysis of problems, Reimagining Sustainable Cities prioritizes solutions-oriented thinking--surveying historical trends, providing examples of constructive action worldwide, and outlining alternative problem-solving strategies. Wheeler and Rosan use a social ecology lens and draw perspectives from multiple disciplines. Positive, readable, and constructive in tone, Reimagining Sustainable Cities identifies actions ranging from urban design to institutional restructuring that can bring about fundamental change and prepare us for the challenges ahead.Galina Limorenko is a doctoral candidate in Neuroscience with a focus on biochemistry and molecular biology of neurodegenerative diseases at EPFL in Switzerland.

Fleur Watson, "The New Curator: Exhibiting Architecture and Design" (Routledge, 2021) The New Curator: Exhibiting Architecture and Design (Routledge, 2021) examines the challenges inherent in exhibiting design ideas. Traditionally, exhibitions of architecture and design have predominantly focused on displaying finished outcomes or communicating a work through representation.In this ground-breaking new book, Fleur Watson unveils the emergence of the ‘new curator’. Instead of exhibiting finished works or artefacts, the rise of ‘performative curation’ provides a space where experimental methods for encountering design ideas are being tested. Here, the role of the curator is not that of ‘custodian’ or ‘expert’ but with the intent to create a shared space of encounter with audiences.To illustrate this phenomenon, the book explores a diverse, international range of exhibitions. Divided into six themes, a series of project profiles are contextualized through conversations with influential curators and cultural producers such as Paola Antonelli, Kayoko Ota, Mimi Zeiger, Catherine Ince, Aric Chen, Zoë Ryan, Beatrice Leanza, Prem Krishnamurthy, Marina Otero Verzier, Brook Andrew, Carroll Go-Sam, Rory Hyde, Eva Franch i Gilabert, Patti Anahory and Paula Nascimento.Featuring over 100 color illustrations, this highly designed, beautiful book offers an innovative contribution to the field. An essential read for students and professionals in architecture, design, art, visual culture, museum studies, curatorial studies and cultural theory. The book also features a foreword by Deyan Sudjic and an afterword by Leon van Schaik AO.Bryan Toepfer, AIA, NCARB, CAPM is the Principal Architect for TOEPFER Architecture, PLLC, an Architecture firm specializing in Residential Architecture and Virtual Reality.

Jewish Architecture: A Stage for Jewish Liturgy Jewish religious architecture is central to the Jewish religion. Across the centuries, Jewish temples and synagogues have been treated as symbols of hope, representations of collective memory, and focal points of conflict. They are built around the Jewish way of life and in turn, define it.What are the foundations of Jewish architecture? And what cultures and ideologies have shaped it? With particular reference to Herod’s Temple, these are questions that Professor Steven Fine, Director at the Center for Israel Studies at Yeshiva University, discusses in this podcast, based on the Brill publication Jewish Religious Architecture: From Biblical Israel to Modern Judaism.

Under the Arch of Titus: A Gateway to the Jewish Community In this episode, Steven Fine, Churgin Professor of Jewish History at Yeshiva University, Israel, discusses his new book Arch of Titus: From Jerusalem to Rome—and Back, published in Brill’s Religious Studies, Theology and Philosophy E-Books Online collection.He explores how the Arch has been a symbol of subjugation as well as empowerment for both Jewish and Christian cultures as they evolved across centuries; how it is a door to the story of the Jewish community’s resilience; how it has inspired other monuments of power over globally; the layers of meaning it contains; and the reverberation, and thus enhancement, of its meaning in the digital age.

Episode 107: How Kris Spann is reimagining Australia's public retail spaces The People Parkers recycled plastic mobile parklet facilitates the rapid, sustainable and considered reimagining of car parking spaces and roadways into temporary outdoor dining quarters. Roadways are public space and this product is a tactical mechanism to temporarily relocate this space and inform options for long term changes of use. In 2015 People Parkers was born out of Glebe Point Road Trial Parklet Program which was a case study of how parklets could be used to improve amenity, community and business outcomes along Glebe point road. The aim was to provide a suite of products that could be employed anywhere to demonstrate how a street could be more than a place to park a vehicle which is and will be an essential question as we progress to car-share and shared autonomous vehicles in the future.We talk to Kris Spann, president of the Glebe Chamber of Commerce, winner of the NSW Business Chamber Young Entrepreneur of the Year award and founder of People Parkers, who we've dubbed the 'Banksy of Australia's public retail spaces' for his amazing work in the congested streets of Sydney's inner-west.This podcast was brought to you in association with Stormtech  proud sponsors of our 2022 Commercial series of podcasts.

49. Limiting Noise Distraction | Ryan Graye of Eremos I’m joined by Ryan Graye, the founder and principal of Eremos, an acoustic design firm based in New York City and Miami. We get into how he got his start in this field, his design experience with major fitness facilities, and his current project with the NOBULL headquarters in Boston. Ryan shares what he learned during his time at Cerami & Associates and how he decided to leave the corporate world to start Eremos. Acoustic design is all about applying the science of sound and vibration to architecture. It’s something that a lot of people take for granted, but quickly realize how important it is when a space is poorly designed. One of the most challenging spaces to design and configure are gyms and fitness studios, but Ryan has found a particular niche in that area. NOBULL is a cross-training footwear, apparel, and accessories brand that is setting up shop in the former Boston Globe Headquarters. CrossFit is a major part of their brand identity, so Ryan is in charge of making sure that people can slam 300-pound tires on the ground without disturbing their co-workers in other parts of the building. There’s also a rock climbing wall, digital content creation spaces, and a track for walking meetings to consider. Though NOBULL is gearing up to get back into their brand new office, Ryan provides advice for how people can improve the sound of workspaces at home and simple recommendations for limiting noise distraction in small spaces. Listen in to hear more about Ryan’s unique perspective on design and learn how to optimize your own space.About the Guest:Ryan Graye is the founder and principal of Eremos, an acoustic design firm based in New York City and Miami. He previously worked at Cerami & Associates, the firm considered to be a pioneer in the field of acoustical design in the United States.

Tommy and Rick are both pioneers of the sustainable architecture movement and have joined forces for the 555 Greenwich and 345 Hudson Street project. As it stands, they’re two existing buildings that form an entire block in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Manhattan. The goal for 555 Greenwich was to stitch the two buildings together, complete 345 Hudson Street, and face west out towards the Hudson River. The combined buildings are 1.2 million square feet, and as you can imagine, designing that kind of space isn’t without its challenges. However, the team at COOKFOX has come up with a way to embrace those constraints and create a thermally active superstructure, the first of its kind in New York City. Rick describes the firm’s various efforts to make radical carbon changes and revamp this 100-year-old building to serve the community for the next 10+ decades. We also discuss the importance of mentorship, how their own mentors have impacted their career development, and what they hope to pass on to the next generation of young architects at their respective firms.
