Architecture Tomorrow:

Developing Our Identities in Buildings for Myanmar


Zaw Lin Myat | TEDxYangon

What are quintessential Myanmar design characteristics? What should they be in the future? Myanmar architect Zaw Lin Myat takes us on a delightful visual journey to explore how he builds a Myanmar identity in his work. He challenges us to question and imagine how Myanmar design can create happiness, sustainability and togetherness in today's world where global influences are huge and resources are scarce.
