On this episode of Burning Down the House, our host Curtis B. Wayne is in the studio with architect Victoria Meyers architect, founding partner of Hanrahan Meyers architects. Tune in to hear about how poetics, music, and sound art has become entwined in Victoria's work. Listen to works by Harry Partch and John Cage; Curtis says these works speak to the architecture of John Johansen. Hear about Victoria's collaboration with sound artist Michael Schumacher: a building covered with frit patterns that trigger sound and music on the iPhone. Hear some architecturally influential pieces from musicians and composers such as John Cage's "Sonata No. 5 for Prepared Piano", and Philip Glass's "1,000 Airplanes on the Roof". Finally, listen to hear about some of Victoria's other projects, including the Bridge Studio on the Delaware River and the Infinity Chapel above Washington Square Park.
