Life of an Architect

Bob Borson and Andrew Hawkins

A gifted storyteller communicating the role and value of architecture to a new audience, host Bob Borson uses the experiences acquired over a 25-year career to inform his podcast. A small firm owner, architect, and college design instructor, co-host Andrew Hawkins brings his insight from his 20 years in various roles within the profession. It responds to the public curiosity and common misunderstanding about what architects do and how it is relevant to people’s lives, engaging a wide demographic of people in a meaningful way without requiring an understanding of the jargon or knowledge of the history of the profession. With a creative mix of humor and practicality, Borson’s stories are informative, engaging, and approachable, using first-person narratives and anecdotes that have introduced transparency into what it really means to be a practicing architect.

    Isolating two host voices on two separate audio tracks makes it irritating to listen to with headphones. Stereophonic hearing is really important to comprehension, so hearing one person in one ear and one voice in the other ear hinders comprehension.

Much like architecture, the podcast covers a wide range of topics - architecture school, NCARB test, the workplace, etc... but they also personalize it with their own stories and experiences! Bob even had a whole episode about his home reno... more
