This week's conversation on Burning Down the House focuses on the fusion between urban design, architecture, transportation and shape of our cities. Curtis B. Wayne is joined by Mitchell Joachim and Melanie Fessel of Terreform ONE (Open Network Ecology), an Ecological Design Group for Urban Infrastructure, Building, Planning, and Art. Later on the show, the discussion shifts towards the sensitive and heated topic of licensure in architecture. This program was sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

"Pedestrians are the alpha position to explore a city. The foot is the best interface."

"Infrastructure is not celebrated enough in the United States."
