06 Oct 3 TED Talks for Architects
Architecture is much more than construction. It is culture, expression, reflection of its own context. Here are three TED talks that will undoubtedly inspire you.
My Days as a Young Rebel
Frank Gehry is a living legend of architecture. He’s responsible for the Guggenheim in Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, just to name a pair. The architect, who is now 92 years old, refuses to slow down and remains as fierce as he ever was. In this Ted talk he talks about the bold statements that he has made through his work, reshaping the building’s context and creating whole new landscapes, and he invites the audience to think about all the work around the buildings that shape our lives.
A stealthy reimagining of urban public space
Elizabeth Diller is an architect, artist and designer based in New York. She is a partner at Diller Scofidio + Renfro, a studio whose work addresses the evolving role of institutions and the future of cities. This talk reflects on a few projects developed in New York and Moscow in the light of pandemic times.
Turning Dunes into Architecture
Magnus Larsson shares his big dreams: he wants to turn deserted landscapes into habitable structures. His vision is to turn sand dunes into solid architecture using biological components. The ideas he presents during this talk are fascinating not only because of the possibilities that this process implies, but also because of the young speaker’s passion and drive.
