TED Talks Blog Post

We love a good TED Talk. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, they are live talks that people can go and see, about inspiration subject matters, from which we can all learn. But they also film each once and put them on the internet for all to enjoy.

Within this vast treasure trove of learning are several talks all about property and real estate. Even if you are only vaguely interested in the subject matter, a great TED Talk is engaging.

So, without further ado, here is our latest recommendation. Watch the video below for Theaster Gates explaining how a neighborhood can be revived through imagination, beauty and art. Hear how he transformed abandoned buildings into community hubs that connected and inspired those in Grand Crossing, Chicago. From buying a run-down, cheap, building and then using architecture and creative thinking to turn it into something that is valued.

At just 16 minutes in length, this is a quick way to find your next property development inspiration.
