Es ya una tradición esperada por todos los seguidores de la organización TED (Tecnología, Educación y Diseño) conocer al ganador de su premio anual de 100 mil dólares. Hasta este año, había sido otorgado a una persona considerada «excepcional» por los organizadores, quien a su vez debía invertir el dinero en una iniciativa que él considerara vital.

Esta empresa se enmarcaba en un programa llamado «Un deseo para cambiar el mundo«, con el cual la organización intentaba movilizar sus acciones. Pero TED ahora decidió para su edición 2012 premiar a un concepto: la Ciudad 2.0.

No hace falta aclarar que las urbes del futuro son un tema candente y tanto empresas como instituciones académicas intervienen en el debate de forma directa. «La Ciudad 2.0 es la del futuro…un futuro en donde 10 mil millones de personas de algunas manera deberán convivir de una manera sustentable», afirman los responsables de TED y a través de una gestión compartida buscarán hacer su aporte.

¿Cómo funcionará esto? Ya han conformado un panel de urbanistas, arquitectos y economistas. Cualquier individuo o asociación que quiera proponer ideas sobre este tema deberá enviar sus propuestas atedprize@ted.com y esperar hasta el 29 de febrero de 2012, cuando se devele este «deseo para cambiar el mundo» colectivo.

Rachel Amstrong: ¿Arquitectura que se repara a sí misma? | Video on TED.com


Venecia, en Italia, se está hundiendo. Para salvarla, Rachel Amstrong dice que necesitamos superar la arquitectura hecha de materiales inertes y hacer arquitectura que crezca por sí misma. Ella propone un material «no del todo vivo» que se hace sus propias reparaciones y, además, captura el carbono.
