This week we’re talking with Ed Klimek, Architect and Partner at KSS Architects. Our conversation with Ed covers a lot of ground, including changes in workplace and the future of robotics! But we start with family, including the impact of COVID on non-COVID healthcare, and the wisdom of not buying your adult kids washing machines so they still have to come home to do their laundry!
We also learn of Ed’s inspiration in launching a new life path after Architecture, building on his dedication to social justice when working on Solidarity Lending and community outreach in Guatemala. The resilience of the people he works with in these small remote communities can be a lesson for us all as we deal with our own upheavals.
Ed feels that one of the reasons that many people have taken to thinking only of themselves is because they have lost their “Interior Lives”, that is, understanding who you are as a person a basis for making “moral decisions”.
Contrary to my own pessimistic view, Ed explains the reasoning for his optimism. Listen in and maybe you too can feel more optimistic about our future!
