If you’ve listened to them already, you know how it works: four architects come together to share stories on a theme. This time the theme was built around St. Patrick’s day. We had several interpretations: stories about green architecture, getting lucky, and potent potables. Our amazing presenters for this time were Christina Hohman, Rebecca Schwartz, AIA, and F. Jeffrey Murray, FAIA.

Jeff Murray had a visual aid for his story, which you can see below.
And thanks to Michael Baker International for opening up their corporate offices (and all of its amazing views) to us.
If you’ve listened to them already, you know how it works: four architects come together to share stories on a theme. This time the theme was Scary Stories for Halloween. Our amazing presenters for this time were Bea Spolidoro, Quintin Kittle, Anne Swager, and Rob Pfaffmann.
Unfortunately, we had to lose some of Quintin’s talk due to the slideshow not making very good radio. We’ll just have to have him back again.
We have something totally different to start out the third season of Design:interviewed. A live event that I put together with the members of the Young Architects Forum in Pittsburgh, with the help of Eric Fisher. And before we get started, if you’re new to the show, please subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
Mentors are invaluable to any profession, sharing their experience with the next generation. Architects are gifted storytellers, through their words and the forms they create. Storey Telling combines both, creating a way for mentees to connect with compatible mentors through personal experience. At every Storey Telling event, architects and designers share a short personal story on a theme. After, they are available to connect with mentees after over drinks and light fare.
Four people were kind enough to come out and share a story.
Emily Putas, a fellow YAF member, Syracuse alum and employed at Stantec (formerly Burt Hill, may it rest in peace).
Fun fact: John was a teaching assistant when completing his Master’s at Syracuse, and assisted in teaching Emily who was working on her undergrad. They didn’t expect to meet each other at this event. It’s a small world after all.
Everyone had so much fun, here are some pictures to prove it.
