Brooklyn Magazine with New Lab, Mitchell Joachim, Terreform ONE at the Navy Yard


Inside New Lab: How the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Innovation Hub Is Shaping the Future Who they are and what they do: By Carey Dunne
Cofounded by Mitchell Joachim and Maria Aiolova, Terreform ONE [Open Network Ecology] is a non-profit experimental green design laboratory creating concepts to advance cities across architecture, industrial design, and landscape ecology. Think buildings made of living trees, houses made of meat, and chairs grown from mycelium.
The perks of working at New Lab:
“There is no office space like this. We’re in the center of a high-tech elf workshop. We’re a combination of a coworking space and a maker community, and we get to collaborate with people in other companies with vastly different backgrounds and skill sets.”
What’s coming next:
“For years, we’ve been working on the ‘Post Carbon City State,’ a speculative model for a future Manhattan with zero carbon footprint, made entirely of green stuff: a light rail instead of cars, buildings with sides covered in plants for better air quality, etc.,” Joachim says.
Coolest recent projects:
“The Plug-In Ecology Urban Farm Pod, a giant sphere in which you can grow food in urban areas (in apartments, on balconies or rooftops),” Terreform ONE cofounder Mitchell Joachim says. “With arduino controllers connected to an app, you can check up on how your kale is ready to eat or tomatoes aren’t yet ripe.”



Hopscotch Design Festival with Mitchell Joachim of Terreform ONE

Hopscotch Design Festival gathers thinkers, makers and storytellers to share ideas and foster conversations about how design is shaping the future. It features national and local presenters who work across graphic design, urban planning, user experience design, technology, architecture, music, food, film and more.

ACADIA Exhibition Terreform ONE

The ACADIA 2015 conference, titled Computational Ecologies: Design in the Anthropocene, seeks to expand the topic of environmental discourse beyond purely practical issues of “performance” as a general means of engaging experimental contemporary design that explores aesthetic, conceptual, and even philosophical levels as well. The currated projects exhibition expands on the topic while featuring recent work by cero 9Stefan BehnischNADAAANew TerritoriesPhilippe Rahmallthatissolid CASECODAEASTON+COMBSENDEMICform-ulaGeofuturesCesare GriffaHANNAHCiro Najle + Lluis Ortegapneumastudio, and Terreform ONE.

How to Stop Humans From Filling the World With Trash with Mitchell Joachim Terreform ONE

The Atlantic, Alana Semuels, July/August 2015 Issue
"How to Stop Humans From Filling the World With Trash" 
From the article: Skyscrapers Made of Garbage
We already turn water bottles into fleece, plastic bags into deck material, roofing into pavement. But ideas abound for more-futuristic forms of recycling. Mitchell Joachim, a co-founder of Terreform ONE, a design firm based in New York, proposes crushing trash and molding it into Tetris‑esque blocks that we could use to build islands and skyscrapers. Joachim’s firm has created architectural plans for a 53-story tower made with the waste New Yorkers produce in 24 hours. A group in Guatemala called Pura Vida is already working on a low-tech version of the same idea; it promotes the use of a building material it calls an “eco-block”—just a plastic bottle stuffed with trash—that it says makes for excellent insulation and is safe in earthquakes.

Joachim, of Terreform ONE, says the planned obsolescence of products should be outlawed. So-called extended-producer-responsibility laws could require manufacturers to fund and manage the recycling of their goods so that the private sector, rather than the public, is responsible for products at the end of their life, giving companies an incentive to make their products last longer. The beginning of the cycle, not the end, might be when we can most effectively eliminate trash.
