CJ BROCKWAY ON DESIGN GOGGLES PODCAST

This June, Rachel and Charles from Design Goggles welcomed CJ Brockway, Principal of SparkLab, to chat about 'Light and Day.' 

Design Goggles synopsis: "For a few months of the year, Seattle is darker than anywhere else in the country. Living through it year after year, Seattlites have developed a special relationship with light, both natural and otherwise. How can we better take advantage of this special relationship in architecture and design? How can designers integrate light thoughtfully into their work? How come streetlights are so darn harsh? What's Kelvin, and should we care? (Yes, we should.)"
