Architecture Masters

Architecture & Design

Architecture Masters is the podcast from the London Festival of Architecture about the people behind the buildings: a series of conversations with some of architecture’s leading lights. These are the people quietly shaping our cities – all hugely respected within the architectural profession, yet somehow their modest profile often belies the impact they have on the world around us. This is a programme for those that are interested in the people who are shaping our world.
