An architect and an engineer discuss how the State influences development of the Built Environment, and consider alternative, non-aggressive means for resolving conflict and promoting cooperation in the development of the built environment.
Tim and Joe are twin brothers who have a combined three decades of experience delivering local and international construction projects.
Tim is a registered architect based in Boston who has designed and managed many projects throughout New England and New York.
Joe is an engineer based in Adelaide, South Australia, with multidisciplinary experience including mechanical, electrical, automation, and IT.
By applying ideas of anarcho libertarianism to topics including land use planning, zoning, cities, urban design, utilities, infrastructure, transportation, architecture, and design, Anarchitecture hopes to demonstrate that anarchism is conceivable, possibly achievable, and ultimately desirable.
ana032: HVAC vs. COVID: Will Schools Spread Airborne Infection? | with Goshe and Joe from Angineering.Tech
If COVID-19 is airborne, will it spread in classrooms? Can HVAC systems reduce this risk, or will they spread it through entire school buildings?
Goshe King and Joe Green are HVAC engineers and the voices behind the Angineering Tech podcast.
We have a detailed technical discussion covering:
- Biomechanics of the virus (aerosol vs. droplet spread)
- Anatomy of an HVAC system
- How ventilation and filtration can reduce probability of infection
- UV and HEPA air purifiers
- Can schools be retrofitted with effective systems?

ana029: Hospital Space is Inhibited, so Public Space is Prohibited
How does a quarantine affect public space?
Why aren’t there enough ICU beds?
Tim reflects on his experience designing hospitals to explain why the US healthcare infrastructure may be ill-equipped to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Spoiler alert: It’s far from anything resembling a free market.
This stress on the healthcare system has been used to justify unprecedented restrictions on the use of government-owned public space. How would private owners of public space manage infection risk in a stateless society?

Customer ReviewsSee All
Extremely underrated show, they tackle some very tough issues!
Being familiar with most libertarian ideas, this podcast has a refreshing take on things that don’t get talked about as much in libertarian circles like community and aesthetics.
Sometimes the sound quality is hard for me to understand at my regular double-speed pace, and I’m not a huge fan of the soundboard sound-effects, but I it’s not anything that will stop me from listening. Keep doing what you’re doing guys!
Great topics by well-informed, intelligent dudes. Enjoyed the quirky segue music
