15: Power, Racism & Systemic change in Architecture w/ Charlie Edmonds
In the last year, the FAF and Charlie have been making waves in the field of Architecture raising massive awareness around the exploitation of architectural assistants in the UK. His campaign started as an Instagram poll and transformed into a national survey that was headed by the Architects' Journal. As a result of his whistleblowing campaign and continual social media activism, the Architectural Registration Board (ARB) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) initiated institutional and systematic changes to address the issues and mistreatment experienced by those at the bottom of the profession.
14: The Story of Dezeen w/ Marcus Fairs
In this episode, I spoke to Marcus Fairs, The Editor in Chief and founder of Dezeen. The world’s most influential design magazine.
Now I’m gonna be honest with you, I was a little nervous for this one. Because I’ve known the name Marcus Fairs since the early days of university, and Dezeen has had a huge impact not just on me but the entire field of Architecture. It’s changed the discourse. I never thought I’d be sat opposite its founder asking him questions about how he partied with Kanye West and flirted with Zaha Hadid. But Marcus was not an easy person to interview, probably because HE'S normally the one asking the questions!

12.1: The Business of Architecture w/ Rion Willard
In this episode, I spoke to Rion Willard, Architect, Business consultant, and host of the Business of Architecture Podcast UK.
Let’s talk Money… Or better yet, let’s talk VALUE. Architects are often illiterate when it comes to the art of making money, yet some designers and architects are multi-multi millionaires. So what makes design worth a lot of money?
Love the topics!
Deep convos and they are actually useful..
Really looking forward to hearing more episodes!
