Night White Skies

Join Sean Lally in conversation about architecture’s future, as both earth’s environment and our human bodies are now open for design. The podcast engages a diverse range of perspectives to get a better picture of the events currently unfolding. This includes philosophers, cultural anthropologists, policy makers, scientists as well as authors of science fiction. Each individual’s work intersects this core topic, but from unique angles. Lally is the author of the book The Air from Other Planets: A Brief History of Architecture to Come and an associate professor of architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is the recipient of the Prince Charitable Trusts Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome in Landscape Architecture. www.seanlally.net

On this innagural podcast, we have Filip Tejchman, who is an architect and assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning. He’s also the principal of Untitled Office. In this episode we talk about his ongoing research called ‘Beyond the Invisible Rainbow’. We discuss the use of energy as a material to build space with and what this means for tools designers use and how this can inform new shapes and forms for design.
