At PyCon 2017, Jake Vanderplas gave a great keynote where he said, "Python is a mosaic." He described how Python is stronger and growing because it's being adopted and used by people with diverse technical backgrounds. In this episode, we're adding to that mosaic by diving into how Python is being used in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. Our guest, Gui Talarico, has worked as an architect who help automate that world by bringing Python to solve problems others were just doing by point-and-click tooling. I think you'll enjoy this look into that world. We also touch on his project pyairtable near the end as well.

The landmark $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will restore and expand the United States infrastructure. From improving roads, bridges, and rail, to expanding electric vehicle charging, to developing a more resilient grid and more efficient buildings, or to ensuring clean drinking water for all—this historic investment will spur construction in nearly every community in America. But it's also a tremendous opportunity to reconsider how we build. Since the majority of construction equipment rely on fossil fuels, this sector is ripe for innovations that address climate change and air pollution. A new movement, led by several cities around the world, including Oslo, Norway, is underway to create a market for climate-friendly construction practices like electrified equipment. In this episode of Electrify This!, three experts discuss the global effort to scale clean, electrified construction. Learn how governments, the private sector, and NGOs are working collaboratively to create greater demand for electrified equipment, and hear insights into how these technologies could revolutionize the way we build.Guests:  Heidi Sørensen, is the Director of the Climate Agency for the City of Oslo. She was elected to the Parliament of Norway from Oslo in 2001, and went on to become the State Secretary to the Minister of the Environment between 2007-2012. She has also served as a member of the Norwegian Consumer Council, the Norwegian Board of Technology, the board of the Research Council of Norway and the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences. Nils-Olav Haukaas is a senior consultant with CEPartnersAS and represents Nasta AS. For nearly three decades has been working in commercial sales and marketing of construction machines and mining machines. Nasta AS has represented Hitachi Construction Machines since 1982. He has also worked in health and safety, product compliance, risk assessments. He has also served on a Norwegian Committee on Zero Emission building and constructions sites and a Zero Emission Digger construction site. Marta Lovisolo, is a Junior Policy Analyst at Bellona Europa in Brussels. Bellona is a climate NGO with headquarters in Norway and offices across several European countries.

Why is the Burj Khalifa so tall? That's what 5-year-old Simon wants to know. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world and it's located in Dubai. 6-year-old Isabel, who lives in Dubai, visited the tower and gives us the bird's eye view in this episode! Plus, Janny Gédéon, architecture educator and founder of ArchForKids answers lots more questions about tall buildings: How are tall buildings built? How do they stay up? Why are so many buildings squares or rectangles? How do they make buildings that are taller than cranes? Resources Architecture workshops and online learning: ArchForKids Download our learning guides: PDF | Google Slides | Transcript Why is the Burj Khalifa so tall? - Simon, 5, Chicago The Burj Khalifa is 160 stories tall. It measures over 2,716 feet tall – or if you think in metric that's 828 meters. “If you put 450 grown ups stacked on top of each other, that would be the height of the building,” Janny Gedeon says. Architecture is the science of designing buildings. Architects consider the purpose of the building and what it will be used for and then they design that space. Square and rectangular buildings are less expensive to build, but architects do like to design buildings in interesting shapes. Check out the Lipstick Building in New York or the Gherkin in London, or the Sydney Opera House. Tall buildings are more common in cities because they allow more people to live in a smaller space. They have to build vertically to fit more people in a small area. “The footing, the space that the building takes is not that big, so they have to build up,” Janny says. The footing is like your footprint, the amount of space you take on the ground. Manhattan is built on a very strong rock, so it can support those tall buildings. Buildings stay up in much the same way humans stay up. There are footings--think of them like feet--that go into the ground. Buildings have a skeleton, called a structural frame, kind of like bones in a human. And on the outside, they have a cladding, aluminum or glass or other materials, kind of like our skin. Wind is a big consideration for architects building tall buildings. They design the buildings to sway. If buildings are too brittle they will break, they are designed to sway. Most skyscrapers get narrower toward the top. In earthquake prone areas, buildings sometimes have footings on a track so they can move. Activity Try making the tallest tower you possibly can, just using paper. (Newspaper works great if you have some newsprint lying around. But printer paper or construction paper is fine, too.) You should focus on making it strong and stable. Strong means that it can hold something. Stable means that if it's pushed to the side it can stay upright. You can use cardboard for the base, but otherwise, see how you can do with just paper. Need a hint? Janny says to think about the ways you'd stay stable when playing sports.

I begin my podcast by sharing my near-death experience as a child, and then my observations from interviewing others who have knocked at death's doorstep, but through some combination of intervention, science or will have fought their way back. In doing so they return with a stronger appreciation of their fragility and mortality. They treasure life and often dedicate theirs to making our planet a better place. I then ask the essential question.  Will the human race have to knock on death's doorstep to appreciate the fragility of our planet before taking the necessary steps to fight climate change?

Allen Douglas joined the program to discuss ACEC/FL's new recommendations on building inspections - a topic of great interest in the wake of the Surfside collapse earlier this year.  Allen released the following press statement today, which gained international attention. ENGINEERS CALL FOR MORE INSPECTIONS AFTER CONDO COLLAPSE MIAMI (AP) — The state of Florida should consider requiring high-rise buildings near the coast to undergo safety inspections every 20 years, according to a coalition of engineers and architects that formed after a Miami-area condominium collapsed in June, killing 98 people. The recommendations, released four months after Champlain Towers South collapsed in Surfside, are based on “preserving the long-term health of buildings by assessing environmental and other degradation of structures and their systems over the life of a building," the American Council of Engineering Companies of Florida and the Florida Engineering Society said in a news release. Seven of the state's engineering and architecture associations formed the Surfside Working Group to come up with ideas to prevent another tragedy like the partial collapse of the 12-story beachfront property. The group also said nearly all large buildings in Florida should be inspected for structural problems within their first 30 years, with follow-ups every 10 years. Buildings within 3 miles (5 kilometers) of saltwater should be inspected within their first 20 years, with follow-up safety inspections every seven years, the group said. The Miami Herald and the Tampa Bay Times first reported the recommendations on Thursday. The report calls for inspections on a wide range of buildings, including condominiums, offices and other structures that exceed 10 occupants and are covered by the state's building code. Only Broward and Miami-Dade counties require mandatory inspections of tall buildings. Champlain Towers South was undergoing its 40-year inspection when it crumbled in the middle of the night. A 2018 engineer's report noted “major structural damage” caused by lack of proper drainage on the pool deck. The condominium board's discussions over how to pay for the repairs delayed work on the building.

About Phil:Starting in business at just 16 Phil has extensive experience in successful startups over the last 15 years, across a wide range of sectors including; furniture, retail, manufacture, technology, hospitality, interior design and property development.Phil and Karl have been friends for over 12 years and combined their skills to form Winter Melia Developments back in 2015 where they have seen the business scale organically from single dwellings to large scale residential conversions. Phil heads up the business and operations side of the business, while Karl focuses on the construction side of the business. We fell into historic buildings as an investment strategy when purchasing our first listed building in auction back in 2017, since then we have focused on this niche - which doesn't come without its challenges but our desire to create something unique and desirable has led us into this sector of the market. Having won several awards over the past couple of years for our schemes its certainly an area we are looking to explore further and we currently have 2 more Churches in the development pipeline with a combined GDV of £8m.Aside from property we have also recently launched a Proptech startup called BreezeMove, after being so fed up of the slow, opaque and frustrating side of the transaction from both a buyer and seller perspective on many occasions, we decided to set out to change that. Having come up with the ideal of a centralised digital platform to give all parties complete transparency of where the process is up to and which side is accountable for the next stage, we were invited down to The Home Office in 2017 to discuss with MHCLG which is where our journey started!About your host, Tej:Tej graduated from King's' College London with a BSc Biochemistry in 2014, he then pursued a career in Medical Education and Marketing. Soon after his second job… he was fired! A moment of relief and freedom was what he felt, not sure what his mother felt when he told her he was jobless at 23…He then went in search of a more ethical path, a business he could set up where the reward was equal to the work put in. “If they are making pounds, why am I making pennies?” - was his thought process, not happy with slow progression and bureaucracy (& having to wear smart shoes everyday). This lead him to opening a Recruitment business (not sure where the ethics went) which doubled in profit every year, for 4 years. He hated it. Golden handcuffs they call it.Fortunately, he used the cash he'd built up from that business, to educate himself in Property Investing. Soon, he'd stopped the business and transitioned into Property Investment full time. He then had a slow start -Purchasing 15 properties in his first 9 months, using over £650,000 of Investor Finance, he built a £1,200,000 property portfolio and created £30,000 of profit from flips. This gave him ‘financial freedom', but it was the most stressful period of his life. Growing quickly is very painful.Let's not forget that his Podcast grew to be the most-reviewed UK Property Podcast, peaking at 4,000 unique downloads per episode.His Podcast (Tej Talks) now sits at 660,000 downloads in over 100 countries and has 489 reviews, rated 5/5.

During the first chapter of his career, Jim Jacoby built a successful, privately-owned agency pioneering user-centered design in finance, healthcare, tech, and manufacturing. Then, at the peak of his success, he took a step back and commissioned a world-renowned designer to build a revolutionary motorcycle. Jim studied the methods and behaviors behind the process, then codified his findings into a system that could be applied in any industry—giving a modern, 21st century twist to the idea of Craftsmanship. Jim then reimagined a user-centered design firm from the ground up, launched an executive coaching program, and established a fine-dining venue. We first met Jim a few years ago at a Sofar Sounds show in Chicago. He and his partner Molly were hosting the concert, and their home environment immediately drew us in. And the more we've come to know Jim, the resonance has only grown. Not only has he moved through some courageous shifts in his career and personal life, but he's also mined some profound insights along the way.

All around us, hidden inside our buildings, are a series of choices and tradeoffs -- choices with direct impacts on our health, our money, and our energy use. Our buildings are wasteful and are filled with a lot of “embodied” carbon. As a result, buildings directly and indirectly account for 40 percent of global emissions. How do we make those choices with better building science?And how do we use that science to design carbon out of our buildings?This week, Katherine and Stephen are joined by Christine Williamson, the creator of Building Science Fight Club. She is a building scientist who teaches architects how to think more intelligently about designing residential and commercial buildings to improve comfort and energy performance, while minimizing system failures.She also has an unconventional take on the green building space — arguing that many of the “feel good” approaches are not necessarily the most functional. Christy has spent her career inside homes and commercial buildings using “building forensics” to identify problems with design and operation.
