Alan Maskin presents at TEDxSausalito

December 2, 2016

On Thursday, September 22, 2016, the Bay Area Discovery Museum hosted TEDxSausalito featuring diverse voices under the theme of “Why Creativity?”. Olson Kundig, Principal and Owner, Alan Maskin was invited to speak at the event and shared his exploration of the transmogrification of architecture through his recent project, “Welcome To The Fifth Facade.” The multiple iterations of the project afforded Alan and his team the opportunity to examine the dystopic—as well as utopic—potential of the neglected top layer of cities—the rooftops.

Launched in 2009, TEDx is a program of locally organized events that bring the community together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxSausalito focused on how and why creativity is a catalyst for change. Speakers discussed creativity through various lenses, including education, technology, business, and public policy. “At TEDxSausalito speakers will spark conversations and ideas around creativity, while also providing practical steps to help our businesses, schools, and other institutions build toward creative progress,” said TEDxSausalito organizer Alfred Lin, a partner at Sequoia Capital.

Creativity is a free-fall. You cannot predict the path where the work is going to go!

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
