In this Episode This year's San Francisco's month-long festival, Architecture and the City, will focus on the theme of Home. For all of us, though, home is not just where we sleep, but it encompasses those cafes, parks and community spaces where we meet our friends and families. Ray Oldenburg called these Third Places and argued that they are important for democracy and vital to every city. We invited Andrew Dunbar, David Darling, David C. Brown and E.B. Min to join us for this special episode of How to Succeed in Architecture, organized in collaboration with AIA San Francisco. Join us as we discuss what constitutes a Third Place, what gives it a "sense of place", and how architects can directly impact civic engagement and human interactions with their designs. This special episode of How to Succeed in Architecture is produced in collaboration with Architecture and the City Festival.
