In this episode, Brooklyn-based architect Kevin Greenberg of Space Exploration delights us with tales of culture shock while working in Japan, notes that decades of architecture practice has re-wired his brain to notice bad design, and articulates how he would one day love to build a site of sanctuary and contemplation. Plus, he concocts some creative and funny solutions to ridiculous problems in a fun game of Fix It!
Before founding Brooklyn-based Space Exploration, Kevin spent some time in both Seattle and Japan. He shares with us the uniqueness of Japanese architecture both in form and practice, and how that shaped his approach to structure and space.

Growing up, Kevin was surrounded by supportive, creative family members that fueled his curiosity for all things creative. Kevin talks about his somewhat left-brained approach to architecture, and where he gets his inspiration from—whether it be his experiences in Japan, or from unexpected places.
Plus, we got him to play a super fun game of Fix It! with us, he's such a good sport.
