Interview with Pooja Bhagat – XX|LA Episode 002
In the second episode of the XX|LA Architects Podcast, I speak with Pooja Bhagat, Architect for the City of Santa Monica** and Chair of the Women in Architecture (WiA) Committee at AIA|LA. In this episode, Pooja tells us about the upcoming Powerful IV Conference, and how we can encourage equity in the profession. We discuss her interest in place-making, as seen in the Ocean Avenue South and Santa Monica Village projects she worked on at Moore Ruble Yudell. We even get personal speaking about her unique perspective as a parent and an immigrant, and how that has strengthened her abilities as an architect.
