Buildings On Air - Audio

Buildings on Air is a show that demystifies architecture through wild speculation, good conversation, a healthy dose of lefty political perspective, and lots of skepticism about the 'power of design.' Each show features guests from the many different facets of the architecture world in Chicago and beyond.

Episode 14 - Dec 2nd, 2017

First up, Marianela D'Aprile will discuss her article (and light up the haters) published in Common Edge titled "The Politics of Architecture Are Not a Matter of Taste." Then Steve Vance of Streetsblog Chicago and Chicago Cityscape will join the show to discuss how information can help us grapple with the forces of politics and economy in Chicago. Then we'll be joined by Paola Aguirre of Borderless Studio who will discuss the civic-action jumpstarting City Open Workshop series that she organizes in addition to her other recent work. Then as always we round out the show with the Mailbag segment where Ann Lui and Craig Reschke answer your questions about architecture.
