The cold, raw reality of having to secure work is the ink stain on an architect’s otherwise crisply laundered shirt of passion and craft. I don’t recall one single architecture professor even hinting at this during my formative years in design school.
In the past few months, a curious set of buttons has appeared at the base of my Gmail messages. They are canned replies to whatever text the software has detected in the preceding email, clickable responses like “I’m interested” or “sounds good!”
I have an armor, and it’s hard for me to engage with feelings. I’m struggling with that as I get older. I’ve never had anyone do anything quite this nice for me.
The following brief interviews (four questions) attempt to gather a range of perspectives from urbanites about the current and future direction of their cities and offer a glimpse into our respective urban think tanks. This is the first installment of what is planned as an ongoing conversation with city dwellers about their changing urban landscapes.

In autumn 2018, BUILD sat down with Ed Weinstein of Seattle-based Weinstein A+U to discuss the prefabricated, modular Papali Wailea project he designed and codeveloped on Maui in 2008. They discussed his design approach for the tropics, creating a spirit of place, and how to keep pests out of architecture.
I realized that while others had labeled the Biosphere 2 project a failure, to me it was also a success. We learned something really important—we do not fully understand or appreciate the intricacies of our world and how it works.
