KPMB founding partners Marianne McKenna and Shirley Blumberg join the podcast to discuss the importance of collaboration, the role that equity and diversity play in their design process, and how their practice has evolved over the past three decades.

"I think practice is much more interesting today. We survived postmodernism; we survived starchitecture; and now, architects are dealing with questions that are far more meaningful and serious. For the first time, in my experience as an architect, we are incredibly relevant—we can make a huge contribution."

– Shirley Blumberg, KPMB
