“Are you an architect, architecture critic, historian of architecture or otherwise involved with architecture and design? Have you always wanted to give a TED Talk? Can you recap 30 years of architecture?”
Until June 30, 2013, TED is seeking proposals for an 18-minute, multimedia presentation that will take their audience through the most important developments and highlights of the built environment in the past 30 years of architecture. The presenter will also explain a personal vision about where the field is going (or should go) in the future.
The presentation will be part of TED’s 2014 conference taking place in Vancouver, which, in celebration of the organization's 30th anniversary, will include several talks recapping the last three decades of advances in a handful of fields in. The ideal presentation should be highly visual, accessible to non-professionals, cover technological advances, shift ideas, and explore the relationship between the built environment and human beings.
If you have “a creative strategy for conveying, with intelligence and gusto, the recent architectural developments that matter most,” then register online and submit a short description (of no more than 300 words) of the proposed presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 30, 2013. This could be your chance to share a stage with the most innovative thinkers and creators in the world...!
