Michael Murphy MArch ’11 Presents “Architecture That’s Built to Heal” at TED Conference
Michael Murphy MArch ’11 presented at the annual TED conference in Vancouver. In this eloquent talk, entitled “Architecture that’s built to heal,” Murphy shows how he and his team look far beyond the blueprint when they’re designing. Considering factors from airflow to light, theirs is a holistic approach that produces community as well as (beautiful) buildings. He takes us on a tour of projects in countries such as Rwanda and Haiti, and reveals a moving, ambitious plan for The Memorial to Peace and Justice, which he hopes will heal hearts in the American South.
