Interview with Dana Cuff, 2019 Women in Architecture Activist Winner on Midnight Charette

The Midnight Charette, a video podcast about design and the everyday, has released a new video podcast interview with Dana Cuff, recent Winner of Architectural Record’s 2019 Women in Architecture Activist Award, Founding Director of cityLAB, and Professor of architecture and urbanism at UCLA. 

Hosted by architects David Lee and Marina Bourderonnet, the Midnight Charette features a variety of renowned professionals as guests in unscripted and in-person interviews, allowing for thoughtful takes and more personal discussions.

The interview is an hour and a half long and covers combining urban design and research, the challenges of changing planning policies, why smart architecture hasn't quite revolutionized the design world, balancing community input with design oversight, and life stories of orange groves and living in Sweden among many other things.

The interview was published on The Midnight Charette's website, YouTube channel, and iTunes, Spotify, and all other podcast players as a podcast. A short video clip of Dana Cuff's interview can be watched below:
