Reconsidering sustainable architecture: Randolph Langenbach at TEDxAmoskeagMillyard

In the race to become “modern,” cities and communities across the world have embraced modern construction techniques, abandoning traditional architectural principles. Yet according to architectural historian Randolph Langenbach, the result is truly unsustainable architecture. Using Manchester, New Hampshire’s own Amoskeag Millyard as an example, he makes the case for preserving traditional architecture, and re-examining our assumptions about industrial construction.

TEDxAmoskeagMillyard 2013 was hosted by Southern New Hampshire University on November 2, 2013. The theme was MINDSET, the mental attitudes that impact our choices and actions, ultimately influencing our results. From conquering fear to changing perspectives, we explored the many ways outlook, emotions, and beliefs affect our mindset. We also investigated how the mindset we cultivate shapes our path, impacts our organizations, and has the potential to transform our communities. Learn more: http://tedxamoskeagmillyard.org
