Architecture is about people. That is my mantra.
So we should talk also about what makes us tick, about what to learn, how to learn. We should think and love to think about all that surrounds us. We should ponder, debate, talk and share in order to gain knowledge and insight into ourselves and society. And most importantly, we should love to know ourselves!
Every first Wednesday of the month I post 4 items that caught my eye, thought and/or hart.
KENT HOFFMAN: Every Person has Infinite Worth for TEDxSpokane
I personally find it really painful that we need people to explain things that should be obvious to every single one of us. But I found this TED talk to be the perfect introduction to this episode of “Ponder, Debate, Learn, Love”, which I call the Social Edition.
This article reminded me of the words of Simon Sinek about how in the 80’s companies started using layoffs in order to prioritize stakeholders. This has dehumanized the work force and the entire process. The results are now visible and people are starting to finally realize the importance of the family at work.
Though the documentary takes place in Berlin, none of the larger European cities is immune to this. This is why I think is beautiful that events like the one bellow are starting to be organized.
The documentary “City for Sale” that is discussed in this article will be screened at the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam. The festival is from 4 to 8 October 2017.
This is one event I am terribly sorry I have missed. I will make sure I don’t next time. In the meantime, the website is a great resource of information. Well done!
