Archispeak is a casual conversation about all things architecture, and we invite you to listen in as we talk about everything in the profession, both the good and the bad. Think you already know what architecture is really about? Tune in to find out.

#71 - The Role of the Designer

In episode 71, join Archispeak for a spirited conversation discussing the role of the Designer. While generally thought of as the "fun" part of the architectural profession, the Designer is the one that puts their work up on the wall for everyone to see, criticize, tear apart and comment on. The Designer gets to hear how they did it wrong and listen to how all the armchair quarterbacks would have done it. Putting it out there might actually be the toughest part of the job.
