Muschenheim fellow Thomas Moran talks about designing architectures with modest media: through the lens of a collaborative intervention project in a foreclosed house in Detroit, he discusses how we can create good design that does not have to equate high cost- that humble materials can create impacting results. Thomas Moran received his Master in Architecture from Yale and a Bachelor's of Science in Architecture from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Through his practice Spatial Products, Moran explores the opportunities for architectural intervention at multiple scales, from infrastructure to domestic interiors. Recently, his design work is focused on realizing objects of spatial consequence with modest means. His work has been exhibited at the Center for Architecture, Storefront for Art and Architecture, and The Kitchen. His design work and writing has been published in the online journal Triple Canopy, Pidgin, MONU, Architect's Newspaper and others. He co-edited Yale's architecture journal Perspecta 41: Grand Tour (MIT Press, 2008). Before joining Taubman College as a Muschenheim fellow Moran was an instructor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.About TEDx, x = independently organized eventIn 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. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
