Lecture abstract

Architect Mitchell Joachim shares his work from Terreform ONE [Open Network Ecology], a non-profit design group that promotes smart design in cities. He discusses the role of design in innovating green initiatives in sustainability, energy, transportation, infrastructure, buildings, waste treatment, food, water, synthetic biology and media spaces.

Mitchell has been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and fellowships with TED, Moshe Safdie, and the Martin Society for Sustainability, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Venice Biennale. 

Mitchell has co-authored a number of books, including XXL-XS: New Directions in Ecological Design (2016), Super Cells: Building with Biology (2014) and Global Design: Elsewhere Envisioned (2014).

About Constructing Realities

This informal lecture series invites speakers to explore the current trends in the making and designing of our built environment, looking at how new technologies are shaping the future of the spaces around us. Lectures include themes of fabrication, bio-technologies, forensic architecture and a critical look at the algorithms and political uses of architecture and data.

This event is generously supported by Populous.
