S01E02 Dan Rothschild

In this episode of Design: interviewed, I chat with Dan Rothschild of the Rothschild Doyno Collaborative. As always, links are below to people and projects that we bring up.

We talk a lot about his Design Sketchbook process. Here’s a link to some examples of what the sketches in those books look like. [http://rdcollab.com/sketchbook.html]

A book featuring the work of his firm, Urban Alchemy by Dr. Mindy Fullilove comes out in June 2013. Find out more (including how to get a signed copy) here. [http://www.designcenterpgh.org/designallies/special-projects/behind-the-magic-of-urban-alchemy/]

The Almono Plan. [http://rdcollab.com/places_almono.html]

Here are some of the famous “top down” urban design models we brought up:

Le Corbusier’s Radiant City. Pictured is his plan for Paris, another very early and very famous “top-down” plan.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Broadacre City. Note the personal helicopters shuttling people between the buildings sprawled out over the landscape.

The plan of Washington, D.C., by L’Enfant.

The Dinwiddie Triangle Project. [http://rdcollab.com/process_library_dinwiddie_story.html]

The Avenue Apartments, story-telling through street level plaques. [http://rdcollab.com/places_braddock.html]

The wikipedia page for Rem Koolhaas talks about his interest in “cross-programming”. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rem_Koolhaas]
