TEDxABQ – Rachel Preston Prinz – How Archaeology teaches Sustainable Architecture

Rachel Preston Prinz is an architectural designer and historian who has worked in the cathedrals and villas of Europe, as well as alongside Americans specializing in religious architecture, historic preservation and ultra-high-end custom residential design. Rachel believes that New Mexico’s archaeological record is interesting in its traditional form of ruminating on the past, and even more intriguing when the lessons learned from studying ancient building forms are integrated into today’s designs by modern architects and builders. The result can be a visually stunning, sustainable architecture that’s not only truly green, but also a reflection on our rich heritage.

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.)
