As an architecture student, I was greatly inspired by this talk. It was amazing.

Brilliant to see practical solutions to the widespread 'clinical' work environments. Very much agree that a future of bland plastic surfaces holds much less appeal than textured and stimulating features. Great ideas to fuel the evolution of the workplace.

I have been studying and researching in this field for a long time and I can say that this lecture was amazing to me.

as an architect student living in a room which its window has been blocked by the backyard`s massive shed, can definetely tell how important the fresh air is.

I’m now 26 and haven’t attended college or university. Mostly because I didn’t find what I was passionate about that could lead to a career. I realized that I loved creating an environment of experiences for people and am a bit of a perfectionist so nothing less is good enough. I’ve spent probably 90% of my life indoors thanks to living in cold Canada 🇨🇦. I want to create a place that’s self sustaining and stimulating for the human brain while creating learning experiences for those humans. Would architectural school be the right path for me?

30 and similar, moved to Canada and completed 3/4th in architecture school before moving. Now I am thinking of doing Product design course. And Yes, I think you would like doing architecture or interior design.

I don't think being an architect will be the right fit for you but architecture school will be. You're thinking in a spatial/ temporal way BUT architecture sustains us passively and it seems like what you're describing is an active space.. The best architecture takes care of our physiology and psychology subconsciously. You're on to something though. The idea is futurist and possibly ahead of the architectural curve. As Stefan Behling mentions, architects only advocate ideas. You'd need a lot of like-minded clients to finance a career. If it's cheaper to create this kind of 'imaginarium' virtually there'd be no reason t build it, I'd think.

Very well explained, especially the part where he said engineers might have different opinions but the bigger question should be is it really good for the humanity?

Brilliant speech! I wish there are more discussions about this topic...

Amazing talk! After 150 days of quarantine, fresh air, natural light, vegetation, become priceless in domestic and working spaces.

I think there’s a parallel to this distortion in humans. Starved of input from interaction with other people, we forget how to navigate with others. Even worse for anyone who was already clueless or miscued.

@artisticbuilding6852 2 yıl önce
I agree with him 1000%. I feel a daily frustration with the current trend of boring, monotous, white/gray buildings that look the same in every country. They're so anti-human yet advertise themselves as "clean" and "flooded with sunlight". No, we need truly positive, humanistic architecture. I wish this guy and likeminded architects had more influence.

You know things have gone awfully wrong when we need to state the obvious on a Ted talk. But if it is so then I am thankful someone is doing the effort needed to fix our modern weaknesses.

Does anyone reading this have any pointers or thoughts on how senses relate to thinking ability?

I like Foster + Partners, but there was a lot of weird waffle in this talk about robots on the moon and submarines etc, though I still agree with the overall point he was trying to make of course.

My respects go with this man, however I think the Google building is not one with the park but an aberration to the park, those air gaps on top of the glass walls are a joke compared to traditional windows, and the lunar houses are yet another modernist obsession for having small, private, anti-social cells.
