TED Talks: Architecture That Heals

At TBL, we believe we should always be learning and growing. Last year we worked on a landmarked building, designed a Pasadena condominium and an underground basketball court in a Beverly Hills home. In 2017, we are expanding our skill set to include a working farm. In our research, we often learn of other intrepid architects exploring their passions. Many of these architects have spoken about their work in the Technology Engineering and Design (TED) forums. We’ve collected our favorite TED Talks and will share them with you in 2017. We invite you to come learn with us.

Architecture provides more than shelter. It gives us solace, healing and inspiration. In this eloquent talk, Michael Murphy shows how he and his team take an approach that produces community as well as (beautiful) buildings. He takes us on a tour of projects in countries such as Rwanda and Haiti, and reveals a moving, ambitious plan for The Memorial to Peace and Justice, which he hopes will heal hearts in the American South.
