Chinese Architecture: From Tradition to Harmony | Mandi Zhao | TEDxWestFurongRoad

Prospective student of architecture, Mandi suggests that the Xi’an community must take an effort to create a harmony between the old and the new—traditional and modern—styles of architecture.

Mandi Zhao has spent her entire life in Xi’an, witnessing the rapid development in the city that contains the glory of the ancient dynasties.

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.)
