LISTINGS: What does a list tell you?

Whether on Spotify or David Letterman, the list is curated picture window into the interests and idiosyncrecies of its author. Generated from scratch, the list can have a theme, remind you of what you have to do, and inspire you to think another way. For this week’s anonymous post, we asked MIT Architecture Head Nader Tehrani to share what he’s been reading and watching:
