The living architecture: Soo-in Yang at TEDxSeoul

Soo-in Yang inaugurated his office The Living in New York in 2004 together with David Benjamin and has been working there since then. The Living challenges new ideas such as open source experiments and diverse collaborative projects and works across multiple dimensions, from a very small interface to a large scale city blocks. Currently, The Living is carrying out a very creative project of the Hudson river where slightly shiny clouds on the waters inform about the level of water pollution. Head of Living Architecture Research Center of Columbia University, Soo In is also teaching architecture there as well as at Frat Institute.

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.)
