On this episode, I sat down with Rodolphe El-Khoury 86 BArch, Hashim Sarkis 85 BArch, Nader Tehrani 86 BArch. We spoke about how their friendship, formed in the RISD Architecture Department, led them to their current positions as the deans of the University of Miami School of Architecture, MIT School of Architecture and Planning, and The Cooper Union School of Architecture. We were curious if there was a special ingredient at RISD which produced three great leaders. And we even asked if they are interested in becoming the next department head at RISD Architecture... only kidding, of course.
