Ideas Worth Sharing
www.ted.com has replaced the ambient drawl of Yellow Ledbetter types which typically stream through my kitchen. The premise of the website is "Ideas Worth Sharing". I dialed it up and selected Architecture/Landscape Architecture from the search menu as my "theme". With the gracious bandwidth of it's cerebral content, I felt as if I had returned to the crimson halls of college.
Delivered by leaders of the profession, I was connected with a syllabus of lectures to refreshingly audit. I started with Daniel Libeskind's lecture on "17 Words of Architectural Inspiration" and then enjoyed Thomas Heatherwick's chat "Building The Seed Cathedral"(my latest crush).
