Architect and friend of the show David Bergman is back on Burning Down the House with Curtis B. Wayne this week to discuss the unintended consequences of city planning, hidden subsidies of the suburban lifestyle and the not so-hidden conspiracy between and amongst Firestone, Goodyear and GM to wipe out mass transit in LA. Listen as they reflect on everything from economics and oil dependance to the interstate highway system in a conversation that will inspire any forward thinking aspiring architect. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

“Architects are visualizers and we’re also optimists in the sense that we see something and think ‘this could be better if it had this!‘ ”

–David Bergman on Burning Down the House

“Empirically, we can say that after September 11th, 2001 – New York City changed substantially and for the better.”
