Episode No. 48: Jonathan Cole, Ballpark Architect


If you are checking this out via iPad or other device and cannot see the audio player, click here to listen — or just go ahead and subscribe. You know you want to.

Jonathan Cole is a founding principal of Pendulum Studio in Kansas City. They’re architects, but as you learn in this interview — to be an architect isn’t just that job anymore. It’s a whole host of other jobs on top of it.

Cole has been involved in projects in Oakland (for the Raiders and A’s), Dayton (for the Dayton Dragons), Winston-Salem (for the Winston-Salem Dash), and Peoria (for the Peoria Chiefs) — among others.

We talk about all aspects of the production cycle here, as well as how big a role politics is playing these days. Give it a whirl — if you like baseball or architecture (or are just interested in new ideas), it’s a good episode.

If you want to see some grainy-ish video of Dayton’s stadium — one of Cole’s projects that he is most proud of — check this out:

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
