These 3 TEDx talks delve into concepts that challenge current trends and thought on sustainability, design identity, and the industry as a whole. Enjoy these engaging and no doubt important TEDx Talks from Rosa Sheng, Jenny Bevan, and Andre Brown on what architecture could become in the not too distant future.

Equity in Architecture | Rosa Sheng

Rosa Sheng, Senior Associate at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson spoke at TEDx Philadelphia on the personal sacrifices that come with practicing architecture today and the challenges facing the Equity by Design movement.

Our Disposable Architecture | Jenny Bevan

Charleston-based designer and partner at Bevan & Liberatos, Jenny Bevan, speaks on issues of durability and sustainability in modern American architecture. Bevan used her talk at TEDx Charleston to explore old ways that could lead to new paths for creating modern works of architecture that could survive centuries rather than just decades (if that).
