The power of Architecture: Fernando Romero at TEDxViadellaConciliazione

Fernando Romero is a Mexican architect, urban designer, educator, theorist, author, and philanthropist. He has been lauded as one of Mexico’s most promising and accomplished young architects. Over the last ten years, he has designed and built more than one million square feet, collaborating with over 500 architects on more than 100 projects. He is the mind behind the Soumaya Museum. The museum’s curator sees the building’s design as reflecting “the different (and sometimes contradictory) tensions that coexist in the city, and which structure Mexican society”.

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.)
