Yale School of Architecture associate dean Phillip Bernstein recently spoke to digital media editor Warren Frey in a wide-ranging discussion about the future of architecture, the potential of the next generation of architectural students and the future of the built environment in the United States.
Bernstein headed a recent virtual conference panel presented by the American Institute of Architects called “A One-Hour Tour of the Future” where panelists agreed if the U.S. is to spend trillions on new infrastructure while pivoting to a green economy architects must have a leading role in the process.
Other topics covered in the podcast interview included why young architecture students generally don’t realize the data-driven potential of their chosen career and the need to concentrate not only on large cities but more rural locations when considering new architectural projects.
