Radio and TV Interviews and other videos

Art Deco New York book talk at the Skyscraper Museum, July 11th, 2017

Back-story: I was stuck on the IRT for 30 minutes en route to the museum  – finally arrived, but poor Carol Willis, founder and director of the museum, had to, in her words, ‘tap dance’ for half an hour to keep the audience from decamping. Her tap dance, about American architectural developments in the early 20th century, is appended at the end of the video – my talk is only 40 minutes, plus Q&A.
