Archispeak is a casual conversation about all things architecture, and we invite you to listen in as we talk about everything in the profession, both the good and the bad. Think you already know what architecture is really about? Tune in to find out.


Interruptions and distractions are something that all architects deal with in life, school and the profession. How do we deal with them? In Episode 57 Archispeak… oh, did we forget to mention we will be attending the AIA Convention in Atlanta in May? Wait, what was that again? Oh, yes, distractions caused by co-workers, notifications on our computers and phones make it difficult to stay productive. We provide tips and… oh, and we are also going to be doing daily episodes from the AIA Convention… so listen in as we share some neuroses of some of our coworkers and challenge our audience to do the same.
