Charlie Rose Show Provides Insights into Designers

Charlie Rose's interviews for his popular TV show include many designers (especially architects). These interviews are a great educational resource for teachers and students.

When the French architect Jean Nouvel, for example, was awarded the Pritzker Prize for architecture, Charlie Rose (right) brought Nouvel, along with former Pritzker winners Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry and Renzo Piano, together for a group interview before a live audience (left).

Rose tends to want to compare architecture and design to art, seemingly to validate design as worthy of discussion, but in general, he is an excellent interviewer and draws interesting insights from the architects and designers he has on his show.
