The Midnight Charette is an explicit podcast about design, architecture, and the everyday. Hosted by architectural designers David Lee and Marina Bourderonnet, it features a variety of creative professionals in unscripted conversations that allow for thoughtful takes and personal discussions. A wide array of subjects are covered with honesty and humor: some episodes provide useful tips for designers, while others are project reviews, interviews, or explorations of everyday life and design. The Midnight Charette is also available on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube.
This week Dana Cuff, Founding Director of cityLAB, Professor of architecture and urbanism at UCLA, and winner of Architectural Record’s 2019 Women in Architecture Activist Award joins hosts David Lee and Marina Bourderonnet to discuss the founding cityLAB, doubling the density of Los Angeles, changing planning policies, urban thinking and social missions in architecture, convincing constituents of projects, career paths, smart cities, living in Sweden, and more.
