Video Cameras in the Hands of Architects

I recently heard about this on NPR last week - Click here to watch the whole thing.

During the last construction boom the New York cityscape changed radically. There are new buildings, new parks, new landmarks and a lot of unfinished condos. The financial crisis has powered down the cranes, and WNYC is taking advantage of this moment to look around and examine how much the city has changed, and where it's heading next.

WNYC Culture put video cameras in the hands of some of the city's leading architects including Stephen Cassell, Liz Diller, Hugh Hardy and Michael Van Valkenburgh, and asked them to share with us how they see the city. New installments of their work will be released throughout the month exploring themes such as new landmarks, green building, public space, and new technologies.
