TEDxCity2.0 day is today! All over the world, TEDxCity2.0 events are re-imagining the cities we live in and dreaming solutions for the cities of the future alongside TEDCity2.0 in New York.
Before the event, TED challenged organizers to remix the official TEDCity2.0 posters (made by design firm Kiss Me I’m Polish) to give them some local flavor — with really impressive results.
Below, five more stand-out posters from these events:
1. TEDxSkolkovo, Moscow, Skolkovo, Russia
Andrey Egorov, organizer: The skyscrapers represent new Moscow — Skolkovo has already become a part of Moscow — [while] the monument Rabochiy i Kolkhoznitsa is a part of Moscow’s past, representing the ideals of development. It was built for the 1937 World’s Fair in Paris.
2. TEDxPortaNuova, Milan, Italy
Giacomo Biraghi, organizer: The collage represents some of the iconic buildings of Milan, but also some new redevelopments that are now shaping the postindustrial parts of our community.
3. TEDxSanJoseCA, San Jose, CA, United States
Diane Michlig, organizer: The birds represent falcons that nest in our city hall. We are asking all attendees to come with a postcard with, "My big bold idea for improving the city is…"
4. TEDxSingapore, Singapore
Dave Lim, organizer: The poster reflects new and old Singapore: colonial buildings, MRT trains, public housing, and the familiar Dragon children’s public playground found in housing estates — and the iconic new Gardens-by-the-Bay supertree structures and Changi Airport tower familiar to all visitors to Singapore.
5. TEDxLeeds, Leeds, United Kingdom
Imran Ali, organizer: Our TEDxCity2.0 poster represents Leeds, the UK’s third largest city. We wanted it to reflect the mix of contemporary and historic architecture in the city – ranging from the Corn Exchange, Town Hall and Civic Hall to the new Leeds Arena, Broadcasting Tower and Candle House. Together, they embody Leeds’ political, cultural, academic and residential communities.
