Edward Suzuki worked alongside master architect and futurist Buckminster Fuller while attending Harvard on a Fulbright scholarship. Perhaps that's one reason he's a self-proclaimed student of life, regularly contemplating the structure of the atom, the environment, philosophy and the metaphysical. Edward's bold yet organic architectural designs draw from influences both East and West, and have taken shape as far away as Kenya and China. They've also brought him well over a dozen major awards here in Japan and the United States. "Eddi's House," a prefabricated system he created with Daiwa House Industry, incorporates his designs into mass-produced housing.
A talk given in Session 1 "How Can We Organize Ourselves To Make A Difference?" of TEDxTokyo 2009, held on May 22 at National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
