TEDxTaipei Salon | Our Innate Ability to Connect with Space

Author : Li-Yu Hsu

Date : 2017-08-01

When architect Li-Yu Hsu invited a number of elementary school students to design a section of their school, these students not only displayed incredible creativity with high levels of practicality, but also great spatial logic comparable to professional architects. Li-Yu shares with us how kids do have an acute awareness of their environment. As adults, we all can rediscover that innate ability.
