TIME 100 London Panel: For Better Or Worse, Social Media Is Shaping Our Lives
On Tuesday night, some of the world's most influential people gathered together for a TIME 100 event in London.

On Tuesday night, some of the world’s most influential people gathered together for a TIME 100 event in London and agreed that, for better or worse, social media has changed our lives — and our livelihoods.
The event saw several TIME 100 alumni, selected by the editors of TIME as some of the world’s most influential people in finance, philanthropy, activism and the arts, gather together in London’s Shard to hear an august panel discuss how technology influences the influencers.

The panel — which was moderated by TIME International Editor Bobby Ghosh and featured architect Zaha Hadid, billionaire and philanthropist Victor Pinchuk, supermodel and activist Liya Kebede, and chef René Redzepi — quickly found common ground when everyone began discussing how digital technology had shaped their lives. Each of the panelists agreed that social media, especially, had guided the way their industries worked.

Others agreed that the direct interaction that social media allows, had an effect on their work. According to Zaha Hadid, the criticism of her architecture provided by social media is inescapable. “My office, they try to protect me from bad news when people don’t like something [I did],” she said. “But I come across it because all my friends send it to me and I find out.” Yet she doesn’t view the feedback as a negative. “That is very important for us as architects, that there is a discourse between us and our client,” she said. “Because your client is no longer one person. Your client is your city.”

The panel’s theme was set by TIME’s newly minted managing editor, Nancy Gibbs, who introduced the event and welcomed the guests. Describing the difference between power and influence, she explained, “Power rules with a fist. Influence rules with a finger.”


New National
Tokyo. Japan

Japan Sports Council


Capacity 80,000 people

The new Tokyo National Stadium
more than a large sports facility
designed to the highest design
specifications and functional
requirements. It is a piece of the
city's fabric, and urban connector
which enhances and modulates
people moving through the site
from different directions and
points of access. The elevated
ground connections govern the
flow of people through the site,
effectively carving the geometric
forms of the building.

The building volume sits gently within the urban landscape and is
articulated as an assembly of stadium bowl, structural skeleton,
cladding membranes and the museum, together forming an intricate
structural composition that is both light and cohesive. The perimeter of
the bowl structure becomes a new inhabited bridge, a continuous
exhibition space that creates a new type of journey for visitors flowing
along the project's North-South axis.

The stadium roof defines an iconic silhouette that integrates gently
within the cityscape around it. It is an intricate assembly of efficient
long-spanning structural ribs which are spanned by a system of
lightweight, translucent membranes. This unique structure is a
lightweight solution, where the stadium elevation graciously touches
the ground, defining a clear approach towards the stadium entrances.
The interior of the stadium is also given a clearly identifiable identity
through the strong roof structure that contrasts with the lightness of the
translucent membrane tensile structures.

The museum is displaced from the main bowl geometry as a
discernibly separate element. It defines an elevated plaza for public
use - a new urban gathering space that can be used by the public for
functions outside of sports events, yet its carefully controlled views into
the stadium intimately tie it to the overall sports complex. The museum
is lifted up above the ground plane, allowing for a minimal footprint on
ground where the landscape extends beneath it.
