Why Architecture Must Convert | Imad Gemayel | TEDxBeirut

Architecture is still a dirty job, building with unsustainable construction methods more than ever because they’re cheap. But not so anymore as Imad Gemayel proves that converted architecture can save financial costs and be better for the environment.

Imad Gemayel is the founder of an independent Architecture practice trying to bridge the gap between ecologically sound architecture and the underlying social issues and lifestyle choices that go with it. He also teaches Architecture at two major universities in Lebanon.

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.)
