Space—living space, that is, and the ways we envision it and use it, and particularly how it affects the way we communicate with each other—fascinates Azby Brown. As the head of the KIT Future Design Institute in Tokyo, Azby explores the sense and sustainability of what we build—and how we live. His many books— including The Genius of Japanese Carpentry, Small Spaces, and The Very Small Home— approach universal aspects through a Japanese lens. Azbys latest work, Just Enough: Lessons in Living Green from Traditional Japan, details how the sustainable practices of the Edo era can serve as a model for the modern world. Azby frequently speaks in Japan and abroad about the concepts hes constructed, and his creative work is widely exhibited in Japan and overseas. http://tedxtokyo.com/tedxtokyo-2010/program/azby-brown/ About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
