In this episode Archispeak discusses the place where all the work happens: the studio environment. We examine what is wrong with the modern studio environment and eventually get around to talking about what makes an ideal studio. Are we all just plugged into The Matrix while working in our office cube farm? What is the worst thing that has happened to the architectural studio? Hint: they are often white and dangle from your ears. These questions and even some Super 8 spoilers are exposed for all to listen to.
