    The Black Spectacles Super Simple Podcast explores how some of the best architects in the world are using technology to empower world-class design.
    In episode 3, Black Spectacles founder, Marc Teer interviews Heath May, Director of HKS Line (Laboratory for INtensive Exploration) about the new LA Rams stadium.
    HKS LINE is a studio that operates as a research and design team, cross-pollinating design thinking across all sectors and industries. An architect with 12 years of experience, Heath and his design team are currently focused on r+d and the application of this research to the built environment. In April of 2013, he was named recipient of Building Design + Construction’s 40 under 40. Heath currently serves on the Advisory Board at the PACCAR Technology Institute at the University of North Texas and holds a position on the Executive Committee of the HKS Global Design Council.
    The 3.1 million-square-foot multipurpose venue — located at the site of the previous Hollywood Park Race Track — is being designed by HKS Sports & Entertainment Group. The unique climate, characteristics and culture of Southern California and Los Angeles are the foundation of the stadium’s design. A transparent ETFE canopy covering nearly 19 acres was developed to maximize flexibility while maintaining an outdoor feeling. The form was driven by a number of factors, including air movement, local geographic features, site elements and overall integration into the district. Under this canopy, all sides of the building remain open-air, allowing natural breezes to pass through the venue and encouraging all the public spaces to take advantage of the indoor/outdoor experiences common to the region and lifestyle of Southern Californians.
    Join Marc and Heath as they walk through the design process and technology that led to the creation of this innovative design.

    In Episode 002 of the Super Simple podcast, Black Spectacles founder, Marc Teer interviews Andrew Watkins of Ayers Saint Gross about the design technologies used to create the University of Delaware's Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Lab project, which won an AIA Technology in Architectural Practice (TAP) Innovation Award in 2015.

    The design and construction team challenged one another throughout the design project to create a modern building through modern project delivery techniques. This affected everything from the subcontractors to how designs were presented to the client. Thirteen Revit models were developed and were used for coordination and robotically-controlled bulldozers were brought in for a greater level of control. All of these things combined resulted in reducing construction time by more than 60 days.
