The Built World Podcast with Bernard Zyscovich – CEO, Founder of ZYSCOVICH

Design can be a powerful vehicle for societal betterment. In this episode,  Bernard Zyscovich takes us through his storied career in architecture, from designing a dentist office focused on the experience of young children,  to the El Dorado International Airport in Bogota. Zyscovich explains his client-centered approach to improve people’s lives through architecture.

In this conversation Zyscovich explains the design rationale for his “Plan Z” bike path, a mission to reclaim & transform now moribund space along the Rickenbacker Causeway to Key Biscayne, into a transformational vision to deliver Miami’s largest waterfront park; all while enhancing safety for cyclists, drivers & residents.  We also dig into how Zyscovich’s background in psychology & political activism grounded his design practice.

As a placemaker, Zyscovich offers us insight into the sobering challenges to create spaces for everyone, but his hopeful outlook is that designers can offer “a little something for everyone.”
