Ted TV is a great place to find inspiring stories. Ideas worth spreading and we love it at Eclipse Security Systems and recommend watching talks by amazing people.
We shared this presentation a long time ago and recently came across it during our spring clean. It is just one of many stories on Ted that will make you stop and think and we thought it was worth sharing again.
Xavier Vilalta is an Architect that designs buildings which connect people with nature. Sometimes we need to think outside the box to provide the best solution.
Xavier Vilalta was commissioned to create a multi-story shopping mall in Addis Ababa, he panicked. Other centres represented everything he hated about contemporary architecture: wasteful, glass towers requiring tons of energy whose design had absolutely nothing to do with Africa. In this charming talk, Vilalta shows how he champions an alternative approach: to harness nature, reference design tradition and create beautiful, modern, iconic buildings fit for a community.
Barcelona-based architect Xavier Vilalta works in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. He adopts and updates traditional design principles to construct modern buildings that truly suit their environment.
At Eclipse Security Systems we strive to remain at the forefront of Security Technology and bringing advanced and intuitive Security Solutions to commercial project and businesses owners that are looking for a security company that embraces the opportunity to think outside the box.
