Haresh Lalvani's work lies at the intersection of Art and Science and is driven by a search to understand how nature designs its incredible creations using generative principles and formal codes combined with forming processes so we can design our own. He is mapping the morphological genome as the starting point for the genomic architecture. He is the inventor of ALGORHYTHMS and XURF product lines, both reminiscent of biological forms, developed in the ongoing collaboration with Milgo-Bufkin. His AlgoRhythm Columns are in the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York. Dr. Haresh Lalvani is a tenured professor of Architecture at Pratt Institute where he is also the co-director of the Center for Experimental Structures. His work has been supported by NASA, NYSTAR, NEA, Graham Foundation, among others, and he received the Pioneers' Award from the Space Structures Research Center, University of Surrey, UK. He was an artist-in-residence at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York for a decade. He designed the award-winning Project X, a luxury apartment high-rise in Manhattan and recently completed a four-story residence in New Delhi. He was a speaker at TED 2004, Monterey, California.

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.)
