Designing Extreme Landscapes: Antje Stokman at TEDxStuttgart

30/04/2012 09:53:18

Professor Antje Stokman deconstructs the myth that being a landscape architect is about designing beautiful green landscapes. What happens quite often is that the green landscape that you build in one place will actually create a desert elsewhere. In this talk, she explores the idea of letting nature be a part of the landscape - which could mean welcoming floods.

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
