For over two decades he has focused on the design of museums, installations, and exhibitions including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Visitor Center, Microsoft’s Cybercrime Center, Noah’s Ark at the Skirball, The Frye Art Museum, Bezos Center for Innovation, Bay Area Discovery Museum, and three rooftop parks in South Korea.
Maskin has won two international design competitions this year for the design of a new museum at the Jewish Museum of Berlin, and he was awarded first place for Blank Space Project’s Fairy Tales competition.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
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.)
