TEDxVirginiaTech speakers will share ideas of inspiration Nov. 10

In its fifth year, TEDxVirginiaTech will bring together Virginia Tech faculty, students, alumni, and members of the local community for a night of inspiring and thought-provoking ideas.

The event takes place 6 p.m. on Nov. 10, at the Moss Arts Center. In the tradition of TED events, each of the 10 speakers will focus on a theme. This year, the theme is Spark, as in the moment of inspiration that sets one on course to research a certain topic, question a set norm, create or perform a piece of art, or start a journey. TED stands for technology, entertainment, and design.

Joseph Wheeler, professor in the School of Architecture and Design, part of the College of Architecture and Urban Studies is presenting on the “FutureHAUS.”
