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.

I am VERY proud of being Brazilian. I have lived in Europe, North America and travel the world. I can say with experience that there is no place like Brazil in the world. Brazilians are hard working, loving, and creative people. We do have the same problems as other developing nations and it will take decades before we are a developed country but we are on our way there. A lot of Brazilians have a complex of inferiority which is a shame.

It's really a shame being a brazilian...

Shigeru Ban
Eco-Architect and Three-Dimensional Poet

Shigeru Ban's practical philosophy of architecture involves nothing less than redefining aesthetics, space, materials and structure. His unusual modular shelter design using recycled paper and cardboard shipping tubes, for example, provided evacuees with sturdy havens after the Great East Japan Earthquake. Shigeru graduated from Cooper Union's Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, worked at Arata Isozaki's atelier, and in 1985 founded Shigeru Ban Architects. His notable works include Curtain Wall House, the Japanese Pavilion at Expo 2000 in Hannover, Germany, and the Centre Pompidou-Metz museum of modern and contemporary arts in France. Shigeru has received a wealth of awards, including the Architectural Institute of Japan Prize, Auguste Perret Prize, and the Ministry of Education's Award for Fine Arts. Currently on the faculty at the Kyoto University of Art and Design, he has also taught at Harvard, Cornell and Keio University.
