the intense final effort made by architectural designers to complete their solutions to a given architectural problem in an allotted time or the period in which such an effort is made


The Midnight Charette is an explicit podcast about design, architecture and people. It features architects, urban planners, developers, fashion designers, teachers and other creatives as guests and is hosted by us, David Lee and Marina Bourderonnet.

The show is unscripted, informal and the discussions are long. This gives us and our listeners the chance to explore ideas beyond the everyday conversation and any 280-character quip.

Some episodes are more lighthearted and design is not directly discussed, while others are much more design-focused. Common topics include: the challenges young design professionals face, design education, urban planning, new technologies and reviews of projects we find interesting.

The discussions we have are brutally honest and often not ‘work appropriate’.

The Midnight Charette would probably be of particular interest to younger designers, students and other future creatives. It is available for free on iTunes, Spotify and nearly all of the other Podcast directories. 

We hope you find The Midnight Charette entertaining and thought provoking.

David & Marina
