TedxEast - The Talks Continue

Joining the conversation is one of the most powerful points of progress in the development of one’s existence.  Don’t worry I’m not going to get all deep on you. I just mean that when one sits in a room and becomes a part of a discussion moving into the future, you feel that you are an agent of change.  That’s part of the reason why we began The Standard Talks series, and why we continue to promote this exchange of ideas, specifically with our partnership with TEDxEast.

Earlier this week, TEDxEast - the independently organized spin off of the infamous TED conference - converged in the third floor High Line Room at The Standard, New York in a discussion on architecture and design.  Hosted by Joshua Prince-Ramus and Bjarke Ingels, both recently named among the top 5 in Fast Company’s Most Innovative in Architecture 2011 and both former TED speakers, the conversation dealt with the forces that influence their current projects found as near as Texas and as far as Istanbul.

If you missed this one, don’t worry, we have more to come. The next Standard Talks will take place on April 27th during the PEN World Voices Literary Festival and will delve into the supernatural while Sunny Bates and her panel of paranormals will summon the ghosts at the stroke of midnight.  Buy your tickets here.
