Mark Gardner, a principal at Jaklitsch / Gardner Architects, joins the Design.ED podcast to discuss designing across cultures, architecture as a social practice, and his non-traditional path to the field. He discusses some of his most formative projects and how what seemed like early setbacks actually turned into strengths once he began practicing.
