just as relevant on the other side of the pond
I have been listening to Enoch and guests for years now, first from the UK where I practiced for 10 years, and now in Germany where I have been for the last couple.
Initially I was drawn by Enoch’s interviewing style and choice of guests, which must be said has only improved along the way. With my “maturing” in the business however, I find more and more that the topics are just as relevant this side of the Atlantic, perhaps not in the detail of contractual nuances, but certainly in the general views/relationships/challenges/good-practice-advice-vs-established-non-optimal-ways-of-doing-things.
The duration of the episodes is perfect to fill in a commute or business flight, and Enoch’s enthusiastic personality makes a very refreshing change to the daily “Berliner schnauze”
Many thanks and do keep it up!
Helps Architects to conquer the World!
This podcast is fantastic and is one of the most insightful, informational, and useful discussions not just for Architecture but for all Design professions.
I actually find it significantly more useful than in the Academic institutions, especially relating to practical experiences.
Enoch appears to interview a good blend of design practitioners and business experts, and asks questions that are current and relevant.
An excellent listen.
Insight for Architects
I think Enoch is a great interviewer. He's finding some interesting topics and great guests. If you are an architect, you should give it a listen!
