TED Talk – Carolyn Steel – How food shapes our cities

Carolyn Steel recently gave a presentation at TED Global 2009 in Oxford, UK last July.

Architect and author Carolyn Steel uses food as a medium to “read” cities and understand how they work. In her book Hungry City she traces — and puts into historical context — food’s journey from land to urban table and thence to sewer. Cities, like people, are what they eat.

The video was recently posted and Carolyn gives a great presentation and some great insights.
