This week’s interview is with none other than the venerable Craig Wilkins. Craig is one of the country’s leading scholars on African-Americans in architecture, and he’s an academic, activist, and author. He can now add one more “A” to his long list of titles — award winner!

I spoke with Craig fresh off his National Design Awards win, and we talked about a number of things — his love for Detroit, what made him get involved in architecture, where he sees design education in the future, why design organizations struggle with diversity, and more. It’s a far-reaching conversation that I think you’ll enjoy regardless of your design discipline. Enough from me though…press play and enjoy the interview!

Happy New Year! 2017 is here, and we’re back with a new roster of great interviews for January. First up: Boston-based architect and designer Aisha Densmore-Bey.

Architecture is sometimes left out of conversations about design, so Aisha and I spend some time unpacking that notion. She also shared what she’d like to see more of from the design community, gave her thoughts on the controversial #NotMyAIA campaign, and spoke about the work she does with getting kids interested in design careers through her seminar program Future Prep 101. Aisha doesn’t limit herself, and I hope you get inspired by what she’s doing so you can let go of limits in 2017!
