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.

Podcast Special: The Architecture Lobby at the Venice Biennale

There was no live episode of Buildings on Air this month since the regular BoA crowd was away at the Venice Architecture Biennale. Luckily, we have your back and brought a piece of Venice home in the form of an audio recording! 

The panel, hosted by the U.S. Pavilion curators at the Biennale was organized by The Architecture Lobby, a labor advocacy group for architects we frequently discuss on the show, and designed to jive with the "Dimensions of Citizenship" theme of the U.S. Pavilion.

The panel is organized into two parts and features Kamabari Baxi, Peggy Deamer, Keefer Dunn, Ane Gonzalez Lara, Nathan Friedman, Ashton Hamm, James Heard, Cesar Lopez, Margie O’Driscoll (moderating), Ron Rael, Manuel Schvartzberg, Dexter Walcott, and Mabel Wilson.

BIG THANK YOU to Chelsea Kilburn for recording the event and providing the audio, as well as the whole U.S Pavilion team (especially co-curators Ann Lui, Mimi Zeiger, and Niall Atkinson) for inviting the Architecture Lobby to be a part of the procedings!
