Buildings on Air is a show that demystifies architecture through wild speculation, good conversation, a healthy dose of left 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.
On this show: Marianela D'Aprile discusses her article published in Common Edge titled "The Politics of Architecture Are Not a Matter of Taste." Then Steve Vance of Streetsblog Chicago and Chicago Cityscape discusses how information can help us grapple with the forces of politics and economy in Chicago. Paola Aguirre of Borderless Studio discusses the civic-action jumpstarting City Open Workshop series that she organizes in addition to her other recent work. Then as always we round out the show with the Mailbag segment where Ann Lui, Craig Reschke and producer Jamie answer your questions about architecture...and plumbing.
