A show featuring Los Angeles' leading women in architecture and discussing relevant issues in the profession. Episodes have two formats: interview features or issue-specific episodes. The goal of the podcast is to promote equity in the profession and create a community for feminist architects.

Episode 4 of the XX|LA Architects Podcast features an informal round table discussion on the topic of starting a small architecture business.  Architects and entrepreneurs HarperHalprin of HH Design, Luciana Tagliaferri of Tagliaferri Architects, and host Audrey Sato of Sato Architects discuss the ups and downs of starting their own practices, including topics like getting work, how we knew we were ready to go it alone, work/life balance, contracts, and diversification.

Our mind and the way we perceive architecture - "The mind is like and Iceberg, It floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water" (Sigmund Freud 1856-1939)

Our mind is actually 10% conscious and 90% unconscious. Big portion of the way we perceive architecture is done with our unconscious.
