In this lecture, Mitchell Joachim makes an argument for the role that design and architecture can play in preventing widespread extinction and ecological collapse. Through the innovative use of bio-technology, additive manufacturing, and other emerging technologies, Joachim, through his practice Terreform ONE, imagines futures in which cities become hotbeds for biodiversity.
Mitchell Joachim is an architect and urban designer based in New York City. In addition to his role as Associate Professor of Practice at NYU, Joachim is a co-founder of Terraform ONE, a non-profit group that promotes socio-ecological design in cities.
