The Architecture of College | Morgan Parrish | TEDxNCSU

Ever consider how your physical surroundings impact your individual growth, development, or mood? Morgan Parrish’s talk explores the effects of architecture on personal development and mental association. Morgan analyzes how the architecture of college campuses force students outside of their comfort zones prompting them to explore society, understand social norms, and define a personal identity.

Morgan Parrish is a sophomore at NC State, within the College of Design’s School of Architecture. Morgan is attending school in the hopes of one day creating buildings that impact lives for the better. She hopes to design spaces that connect visitors with each other, their inner selves, and the vast world God has placed them in. Aside from her schooling, she serves as the Chapter Coordinator for the Raleigh Chapter of Architecture for Humanity.

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.)
