Where insanity and green architecture meet, there shall find our intrepid architects mixing a ‘Dark and Stormy’, and turning on the mike, to act as your good-natured guides. Join Chris and Phil as they demystify this polarizing system. Phil will also share a track from ‘Here We Go Magic’ called ‘Collector’. They’ll share some ‘Rules of Thump’ and then they’ll play ‘Five Questions’ with two professional GSHP installers, Jeff Gagnon and Jim Godbout.

#009 – Dynamic, Livable Urbanism: An Interview with James Moore
How do we design and build places that are as livable as European cities and as dynamic as Asian cities? Is it fair to judge more recent development by the standard set by older development? Does the architecture profession as a whole adequately consider the needs and desires of the people who will be living within the urban ecosystems they design? In the New Urban Architect Podcast #9, architect James A. Moore discusses this challenge, along with a variety of corollary issues. Moore is a Senior Vice President at HDR, a prolific architecture & engineering firm with nearly 200 offices worldwide.
