Best of TED: How to fit more people in every city

A problem with many cities is that they were designed (or perhaps not even that) without the anticipation of the huge growth in population we have seen all over the world. But one man, in the TED Talk below, thinks the design of a city for a pre-automotive era could, in fact, hold the key to packing more people in.

In this TED Talk, Kent Larson explains how this would work, making everything you need within walking distance. He doesn’t stop there, though, and goes on to feature folding cars, quick-change apartments and other innovations that could make the city of the future work a lot like a small village of the past.

Best of TED: Bjarke Ingels architecture tales

Wonderful architecture tales are those that completely blow your mind. To see the final product itself is usually incredible enough. But when you hear the story of how a building came to be, the wonder becomes so much more.

Bjarke Ingels, a danish architect, gave a talk at TED Global in 2009 where he explained the process behind 3 projects he developed, and the incredible stories of how he used nature in every element of design. From using it for a project management process, all the way through to buildings that don’t just look like nature, but act like it too.

Take a short break and invest 18 minutes in watching this TED Talk – we’re certain it will be well worth it for the inspiration alone.
