In Episode 3 of the Ideal Spaces podcast, we are joined by Stan Allen, an architect and Professor of Architecture at Princeton. Stan holds degrees from Brown University, The Cooper Union and Princeton.  In 1991 he established an independent practice, and since that time, has pursued parallel careers as architect, educator and writer. He has taught at Harvard, Columbia and Princeton, and served as Dean of the School of Architecture at Princeton from 2002 to 2012. His books include Points + Lines: Diagrams and Projects for the City (1999); Practice: Architecture, Technique and Representation (2008); Landform Building: Architecture’s New Terrain (2011); and Four Projects: A Stan Allen Sourcebook (2017). His most recent book, published in 2020, is Situated Objects, a book of buildings and projects located in the Hudson River Valley where he lives and works.

We discuss architecture as a material practice that should anticipate and continuously evolve over time and architecture as the immaterial structures and spaces between things. We explore the importance of re-connecting architecture with time and process, to once again find a human measure that makes functional spaces sustainable, human living environments.
