Building communities through architecture: Jeanne Gang at TEDxMidwest

MacArthur Prize winning architect, Jeanne Gang enlightens the audience as to the significant role that architecture plays in building communities. From Aqua (an elegant Chicago Skyscaper) to Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo, Gang’s architectural creations have become an integral part of the lives of the people who experience them each day.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

About TEDx

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.)
