  2. Why We Need Architecture

    A year ago, with a giant economic stimulus package in the works, many Americans envisioned a rebuilt nation. Infrastructure. Bridges. Green cities.

    It hasn’t exactly happened. But the design of all that surrounds us — all that’s built, old and new — is a daily message to us about who we are and what we aspire to.

    Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Paul Goldberger wants to remind us of why architecture matters, in shaping lives and cultures. From ancient Rome to the next wave of American — or Asian — building.

    This hour, On Point: Paul Goldberger, on the power of the built world around us.
