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!
