Rasmus Frisk | “Designing cities for people” | TEDxUWollongong 2013

Understanding the way people think and act, is as much about experimentation as it is forecasting. Urban architect Rasmus Frisk took to the stage to explain why. His talk toyed with ideas of participatory design and letting communities plan, develop organically. Interacting with his young son’s Lego blocks, Rasmus realised that cities without people were merely “display without play”. Take away the emphasis from buildings, vehicles and money, he explained, and your town will be better for it. Stamp out the architect’s ego and be done with making buildings, instead make spaces for people, he said. Read more about Rasmus’ work at: arkilab.dk/
