Roots of Design: Ep.08- M. Paul Friedberg

Chapter President Jennifer Nitzky and I sat down for a conversation with M. Paul Friedberg at his house in Manhattan. It was just announced that Paul will receive the ASLA Medal this year. He has created spaces across the world, including Minneapolis's Peavey Plaza, which is now on the National Register of Historic Places, and Pershing Park in Washington D.C. In our next episode, we will discuss the current situation with Pershing Park, which is in a precarious situation.

In this, the first part of the conversation, we talked about his background, becoming a landscape architect, how he saw cities change before his eyes, and some of his early work.

Roots of Design: Ep.07- Daniel Tal

In this episode, recorded in November at the National Meeting for ASLA, I sit down with Daniel Tal, Author of two books on using sketchup in design. He currently runs a 3D studio for a multidisciplinary firm in Denver. I originally met Daniel at an ASLA National Meeting several years ago while I was doing freelance 3D graphics. In this episode we talked about trends in 3D modeling, Realism vs. style, BIM's role in the future of design, and thinking in three dimensions.
