Why Architecture Should Tell a StoryScreen Shot 2016-02-07 at 3.37.16 PM

 

“For architect Ole Scheeren, the people who live and work inside a building are as much a part of that building as concrete, steel and glass. He asks: Can architecture be about collaboration and storytelling instead of the isolation and hierarchy of a typical skyscraper? Visit five of Scheeren’s buildings — from a twisted tower in China to a floating cinema in the ocean in Thailand — and learn the stories behind them.”

Given a professional past in both design and storytelling this talk caught my attention. While I’m not sure the speaker truly got his point across I did enjoy the opportunity to view these projects and understand the thought behind them regardless. Go here to watch this TED presentation. Screen Shot 2016-02-07 at 3.39.17 PM
