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 5 - March 4th, 2017

This episode of Buildings on Air we talk about public housing, Trump's Wall and architectural activism, and then we open up the mailbag to answer listener questions. First up we are joined by writer Maya Duskmaova and Chicago Public Housing Initiative's executive director Leah Levinger for an in-depth discussion about housing policy in Chicago.  Then it's activist Carlos Roa, Dexter Walcott of the Architecture Lobby, and Gabrielle Printz of feminist architecture collaborative F-Architecture for a discussion of the real impacts of Trump's immigration policy and what architects can and are doing to organize an opposition now and moving forward. Then Ann Lui and Craig Reschke of Future Firm join us as always to answer your questions about buildings!
