In this episode it was my pleasure to welcome Mr John Skok, RA, Architect. Of course we talk about John's background and journey into architecture, but the main focus of this episode is urban architecture, and specifically Detroit architecture. We talk about what John refers to as "The Detroit Opportunity." Starting in college, John has devoted many years to work specifically in Detroit, both in repurposed and new buildings. But there's a strong emphasis here on urban renewal, reclaiming or repurposing buildings, and the momentum John has seen build over the course of two-plus decades in his work with McIntosh Poris Architects. Enjoy the the architect's perspective and view point as we journey together. Thanks for listening!
