One of the reasons I love being a blogger is that I have an excuse to talk with the people I admire most about things I’ve always wanted to ask them. I had such an opportunity two weeks ago with Will Bruder, a world renown architect who is responsible for such architectural masterpieces as the Burton Barr Library, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, the Henkel Headquarters, and the Vale among a myriad of other projects and project types.
In Parts I, II and III of the interview, shown below, we talked about the role of the architect in society, if indeed architects can save the world, and about one architect who definitely thinks he can, Paolo Soleri, and his influence on Will.
Part I How Will was influenced by Paolo Soleri:
Part II Will’s take on the role of the architect in society:
Part III: Will on architects saving the world:
Stay tuned for more of my interview with Will tomorrow!
