A voyage through architectural projects that offer new approaches to the way we live.
Design is about giving the world something new, and inspiring us to think beyond our limitations.
W. Scott Allen is a New York based designer for Perkins+Will. His portfolio includes a broad range of building types located on nearly every continent. Scott is developing an international reputation for buildings that are practical yet creative and inspirational. His work has been recognized with over a dozen global and local design awards. Two of his projects were finalists at the World Architecture Festival Awards, and he was named a Design Wunderkind by Engineering News Record as a winner of their 2015 New York Top 20 under 40 awards.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
