    Libraries: Tianjin Binhai Library

    Libraries: Tianjin Binhai Library

    In today’s episode we explore the evolution and design of Libraries with Maria Lopez Calleja, architect and Senior Associate at https://www.mvrdv.nl/ (MVRDV). As a design team leader for the firm, Maria will provide unique insight as we also highlight the https://mvrdv.com/projects/246/tianjin-binhai-library (Tianjin Binhai Library) in Tianjin, China, designed by MVRDV and Tianjin Urban Planning and Design Institute. Maria discusses inspirations for design, the design process, we touch on a unique criticism of the design, and dig into design concept vs. reality. If you’re not familiar with the building by name, I’m confident you’ve seen photos of it somewhere. The Tianjin library is a somewhat futuristic, yet organic, almost hollowed out space that is wrapped by terraced bookshelves which echo the form of a sphere at the center and create an interior, topographical, landscape whose contours reach out and wrap around the building.
    Beyond Tianjin Library, you’ll hear about the history and evolution of libraries, we explore the purpose of a library, discuss complexities, trends, opportunities for the future of library design, and much more!

    [EXPRESS] 'Managing Risks for A/E'

    As an architect or engineer, how exposed are you or your firm to risk? For example, is there a prevailing parties' clause in your contract? Do you know what that is?
    If you’re an architect or engineer with decision making power in your firm, have your own practice, or are eyeing the opportunity to move up or start your own practice one day, you’ll want to listen to this entire episode. Most people tune out when they hear the word insurance, but this is honestly one of the best and most relatable conversations about risk management and insurance for our industry that I’ve been a part of.
    In today’s episode I speak with https://www.linkedin.com/in/zachary-c-waters/ (Zach Waters), CEO at https://blackswan-riskmanagement.com/ (Black Swan Risk Management). He believes in a practical approach to protecting design firms and spends much of his time teaching and consulting on best practices, quality management, and contractual issues in the Design Industry. We discuss a lot of real-world examples and practical tips that you can implement today to reduce risk for your projects and firm. In this conversation you'll hear about QAQC process, fault vs. exposure, things to look out for in consulting agreements, what a prevailing parties’ clause is, the importance of a go-no-go checklist, tips to negotiate lower insurance requirements, standard of care vs. best practices and their impact on insurance, and much more!
