In this first episode, titled “The Front Lines: Social Media’s influence on design today,” we chat with NYC design critic and author Alexandra Lange. Our conversation moves through the topics of informal use of social media by architects. The feedback loops embedded within social media. As well as trends and globalism in interior design. We conclude by briefly touching on the role of the mall and Alexandra introduces us to her new book, Meet Me by the Fountain scheduled to be released in June 2022.
