Bjarke Ingels: Hedonistic sustainability

TED

Sustainable lifestyle needn’t come at a cost, but is rather a design challenge. This is the core of Bjarke Ingels concept of hedonistic sustainability. In a captivating talk at TEDxEast, the Danish architect showcases how he translates his idea to fascinating buildings. My favourite: The city hall in Tallinn with a built-in “democratic periscope” in order to visualise a form of radical political transparency.
