This week I’m excited to chat with Dirk Sutro, an expert of many stripes, for a Q&A. I’d love it if you’d send me your Qs, and I’ll do my best to gather his As.

Sutro was architecture critic for the U-T and for the LA Times’ San Diego edition. He wrote books on San Diego architecture and UCSD. He also wrote Jazz for Dummies, hosted arts and culture show The Lounge on KPBS for many years and now manages communications for UCSD’s music department.

So, what would you like to know?

Here’s some of what I’m planning to ask: how San Diego stands nationally in terms of architecture, or doesn’t. And how he feels the public should be evaluating new plans for the impending municipal structures like the library and City Hall. And I expect he’s seen some parallels in improvisation and variations from the rules in architecture and in jazz.
