Day 9 - With Professor Larry Speck - Part 3

I recorded this conversation a while back, before I even had a name or direction for the show.  Professor Speck was cool enough to join me on the maiden voyage and we had a great time of it.  I would tell you all about him, but there's just too much.  I've left a link to his website below.  Check it out and you'll see what I mean. 

This is another long recording so you'll get it in 3 parts.  This is Part Three.  Enjoy!!!

Day 6 - With Mr. Hicks : Part 3

This is what happens when a friend and fellow podcaster invites me over for an evening of conversation.  We talked for around an hour, so I split the show into 3 parts. 

Part Three : Part Three is something like a hybrid of Parts One and Two.  Then it ends...in a flurry of laughter and great ideas!!!

Day 6 - With Mr. Hicks : Part 1

This is what happens when a friend and fellow podcaster invites me over for an evening of conversation.  We talked for around an hour, so I split the show into 3 parts. 

Part One : In Part One we introduce Mr. Hicks and his Podcast "Truth and Belief".  A series of tangential conversations ensues until Mr. Hicks turns the tables and asks me about my project, which takes us to the beginning or Part 2.  

 

Day 5 - Your Own Personal Architecture

All of the solid stuff of Architecture creates space, but what makes a Place?  Is an empty house a home?  Someone else said it perfectly.

"...you bind the goods and trappings of your life together with your dreams to make a place that is uniquely your own."

Day 3 - Civic Duty?

Today I had Jury Duty, and the Judge spoke at great length about the importance of donating our time as citizens to this cornerstone of our American Legal System.  I was never called, but sitting  in the courthouse basement all day gave me lots time to think about Civic Duty and Architecture.  Do Architects have an inherent responsibility within their communities, or only to their clients?  Do our duties begin and end with the life of a contract?  Perhaps we have opportunities rather than responsibilities?  One way or another. Architects see the world a little bit differently and that's what we talk about today.  I hope you enjoy it. 

Day 2 - Music

Today I introduce a topic that will be a thematic undercurrent of the show because it is an undercurrent of Life itself.  Music, like Life, Love and Architecture, is fundamental to our existence.  The physical and mathematical properties that describe and define it are a window into the flow ebbs and flows of Life and the advancement of Human culture.  In many ways music and Architecture are two side of the same coin.   Perhaps Mr. Goethe said it best.

"Music is liquid Architecture.  Architecture is Frozen Music."
