TEDxWandsworth 2016\

With an increasingly globalised world moving at a fast pace, it is hard to keep up with the pace of change. This year’s event theme 'Perspective’ will provide a new take on how issues, people and the world are viewed.

The full day will include a TED-like experience with a diverse range of talks of up to 18 minutes from experts and leaders from the worlds of science, technology, arts and business, as well as stories from ordinary people living extraordinary lives. There will also be an opportunity for delegates to immerse in the latest technology as well as network in fun, interactive ways.

We are delighted to announce that Harbinder Birdi, Partner at Hawkins\Brown will be speaking at this year's event on the art of infrastructure, how it defines both our cities and ourselves.

The Crossrail project is a major new infrastructure route through the heart of London. Harbinder Birdi is one of the principal architects, responsible for designing three of the central section Crossrail stations. He reveals lessons learnt from the design and construction involved in upgrading the world’s oldest underground metro system and debates how architecture and art inform the construction of infrastructure projects and reflect the communities that use these interventions within the city.
