Archinect Sessions

A podcast is born! "Archinect Sessions" is a weekly podcast discussing recent news items and happenings on the site. Hosted by Archinect's founder and publisher, Paul Petrunia, along with Editorial Manager Amelia Taylor-Hochberg, the podcast also pulls on the expertise of special weekly co-hosts, whether other Archinectors or players within the architecture community at large.

Our first episode focuses on the issue of gender in the architecture world, prompted by the recent news post from ACSA, "Where are the women? Measuring progress on gender in architecture". We're joined by co-hosts Donna Sink and Ken Koense, and special guest Lian Chikako Chang!

Our aim is to expand perspectives on important news topics and highlight the site's major going-ons. You'll hear from a diversity of voices, and can share your own thoughts about the topics we're covering by dropping us a line.
