Talking Architecture is a series of live-interviews hosted by course Talking Architecture (VIS 2359), conducted by students and moderated by Instructor Diego Grass. These events are spin-offs of GSD-sponsored public lectures held during the semester. Their intent is to extend the conversations between these guests and the GSD community.
