The video for Session 3 of TEDCity2.0, addressing the theme “Reimagining the City,” is now available online for viewing. Each of the six talks had a strong public interest component, while Janette Sadik-Khan and Toni Griffin‘s talks address the subject–and design–most head-on. HUD Sec. Shaun Donovan, trained as an architect, spoke in many ways to the need for comprehensive service design. The 90-minute session included:
PARK(ing) Day video, followed by host remarks by our own John Cary.
Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan is putting pedestrians at the forefront of transportation policy in New York City.
Visionary architect Chris Downey, who lost his sight and gained new ways of seeing the world.
Robin Nagle, an anthropologist in residence at the NYC dept of sanitation, talks trash.
56:29 initial (01:01:02 actual)-01:15:30
Place maker Toni Griffin, an urban planner working to make cities more just.
Housing advocate Shaun Donovan, the U.S. Secretary of Housing & Urban Development.
Sustainability guru Lance Hosey, who’s on a mission to make green design beautiful.
