TIDI085: Preparing for Impact

Rico Quirindongo has been working for over 25 years to revitalize and reimagine some of Seattle’s most historic landmarks and neighborhoods and currently serves as Director of the Office of Planning and Community Development for the City of Seattle. On this edition of This Is DesignIntelligence, he talks about what led him to become an architect, why it’s important for architects to be involved in their community, and how design education can help focus on using design skill sets to pursue alternative career paths beyond traditional architecture.
