What’s in San Diego architects' ears?

Bringing back the serendipity to music discovery

By Kinsee Morlan
PAULY-&-IVAN Pauly De Bartolo and Ivan Rimanic

Online music platforms like Pandora and Last.fm don’t offer the serendipity that comes with flipping through radio stations. To shake things up, we thought we’d ask various urban tribes what they’re listening to. This week, we turn to local architects:


Pauly De Bartolo and Ivan Rimanic, principal architects at de bartolo + rimanic design studio: “The DBRDS office is currently hooked on the song ‘You’ve Been warned’ by local rockers Dirty Sweet. In challenging times, this anthem speaks to us from a place of being prepared to overcome and get creative.”

Rene Peralta, director of the Masters of Design in Landscape Urbanism at Woodbury University: “‘Cholo Soy’ from the album Peruvian Waltz Chillout by Jaime Cuadra—a great find from one of my travels to South America.”

Miki Iwasaki, owner of miworkshop: “‘Fake Empire’ by The National. Good song (and album) for late-night design sessions.”

Jonathon Stevens, project manager at Public Architecture Planning: “David Bowie’s ‘Nature Boy.’ When I focus on creating and searching for the obscure moments in life, this song always reminds me that the greatest thing in life is love.”

Christopher Bittner, principal at obrARCHITECTURE: “Track: ‘Parabola.’ Band: Tool. The structure and melodic quality of the music mixed with lyrics that allude to some deeply held spiritual beliefs of mine makes this one of my favorites of all time.”

Craig Abenilla, principal at Foundation for Form Architecture and Development: “Serge Gainsbourg’s ‘Chatterton’ from his album Comic Strip. He’s the ultimate French hipster. The song is modish and sexy and transports me to the ’60s, an era I wish I got to experience personally.”

Michael Soriano, principal at Onairos Design: “OMG, I’m still loving ‘Bohemian Like You’ from The Dandy Warhols. I love how they satirize the ridiculousness of populist trends and consumerist trappings.”
