It may be an urban legend, but the way I heard it is that architect Robert ("Less is a bore") Venturi grew up over an Italian fruit stand. We might all benefit from having a grocery store to run these days. People still eat, 'though construction starts are moribund.
Architect Nick Agneta's career has taken him away from "straight" architecture into more construction-focused expertise. And then there's Nick's music - he has been composing and performing his own music for over 20 years, his musicianship largely self-taught. Talk about being an eclectic!
Listen as Nick and I talk about the connections, if any, between music and (as Goethe termed architecture) "frozen music."
And to our French friends: Happy Bastille Day.
