New Urban Architect
Should building designs be based on good common-sense or architects’ fiat? What is a living tradition, anyway? Can a building really be considered ‘green’ if it is hated and likely to be demolished within a few decades?
In the New Urban Architect Podcast episode #6, architect Steve Mouzon shares his ideas on these subjects and more. You can read more about Steve’s ideas on his blog, Original Green, or by following him on Twitter.
What makes a good building? Are design codes repressive, or do they facilitate better focus on detail during the design process? When is modernism a drag, and can it ever be made to integrate well into TND contexts?
In the New Urban Architect Podcast episode #5, architect Gary Justiss shares his ideas on these subjects and more.

Studio 360: A couple of years ago, a group of Canadian indie-rockers (some play in Arcade Fire) decided to write and play their own chamber music. Their new album As Seen Through Windows has the epic sweep of a film score. Kurt talks with violinist Sarah Neufeld and bassist Richard Reed-Parry, and they perform live in the studio.
In 1942, Aaron Copland was commissioned to write a score for the choreographer Martha Graham. Dance and music in America have never been the same.
The now-legendary ballet, Appalachian Spring, looks at the tension between community and individualism through the story of a bride and groom in a strait-laced frontier town — complete with a revivalist preacher and his cult-like followers. Produced by Jocelyn Gonzales.
