Great TED Talk

Iwan Baans great talk on how people around the world have
appropriated abandoned housing complexes or made use of their 
own unique surroundings to create a unique living space.

 It's a valuable insight into "when needs must" and also the innate 
creativity in all of us. Its a far cry from our own "cosy world" for 
sure, but the ingenuity is quite incredible.

I think the quote at the end of the talk speaks volumes in a world that
is increasingly becoming too generic and uniform.
