It’s time for TED!: The stage revealed

Posted by: Kate Torgovnick May

The TED2013 stage might make you want to climb. Inspired by a treehouse, the spectacular stage brings together huge, winding tree limbs and structures that evoke the Swiss Family Robinson. The stage features multiple levels which speakers can utilize for their talk. We’ve given up the red carpet this year, yes, but added a new detail we love: the waving TED flag. To sum it up: it’s our most playful stage yet.

Get ready for session 1, “Progress Enigma,” starting at 11am PST. Follow along here on the TED Blog, where we’ll be writing a recap of each speaker’s talk, in real time.

    How about:

    would you rather have indoor plumbing or would you rather have fire and agriculture.

    would you rather have antibiotics or air conditioning

    The internet v plumbing question is a house of cards.

    It might be interesting to mention the creative/collective responsible for the design. At least I’d personally be interested to know. Cool looking stage nonetheless.
