Providing Housing Through "Democratic Architecture"

The title of the book Democratic Architecture might lead you to think it's about building political systems or parties. 

There is a ~little~ of that in the book, but mostly it's about democratizing housing... making it more affordable to more people. 

Author Donald MacDonald is himself an architect (see: Bay Bridge, East Span), and he offers up a number of housing designs to address our many housing issues. 

He joins us to talk design, execution, and more.
