An Architect’s Summer Playlist

B Nicholson Head Shot-CasualInspired by the “The Common Language of Music and Architecture,” from the summer issue of Modern In Denver, we wanted to learn what local architects listen to when they work. So we caught up with Brian Nicholson, an associate with RNL Design, who shares his picks below. “My playlist is a reflection of what keeps me motivated at work when great weather is calling me outside,” he said. “This playlist is a sampling of what I’m currently listening to that gets my head nodding and my mouse clicking faster.”
