CNN - Tech Behind Smart Cities w/ Mitchell Joachim


Solving parking crisesForget flying cars, city dwellers have more to gain from cars that stack. The idea of folding cars isn't new, but as urban parking spots become increasingly rare (and expensive), it's begun to look more promising. As a Ph.D. student at MIT, Mitchell Joachim was part of a group of researchers who came up with the idea of stackable cars. More than 10 years later, he's still hoping that car manufacturers will start producing cars like them. (He's developed a new iteration of the folding cars at his firm, Terreform ONE, a Brooklyn-based lab that experiments with innovative green designs.)
Ideally, the cars would be owned by the city and used by residents for daily commuting, alleviating traffic congestion. (There's been interest from governments in Spain and Berlin, but the funding has fallen short so far.) Think of it as a bike-sharing system merged with Zipcar. "When you're done using it, you'd leave it for other people," said Joachim.

AIA - Emergency! Design for Stressed Futures Jury Competition with Mitchell Joachim

In the year 2050, the environment fractures. Teams choose one of three scenarios and compete or collaborate for survival; an island site threatened by rising waters, an unstable hillside outside a dysfunctional city, or an escape pod from Earth. Make survival worth living through design. The scenarios are intended to provoke and excite teams to innovative and collaborative thinking - prepare for a fun and energizing day.

Dr. Mitchell Joachim, founder of Brooklyn-based Terreform ONE, talks success and sustainability.
“I’m passionate about the power design has to create change,” he says. Throughout his career, Dr. Joachim—a trained architect with degrees from MIT, Harvard, and Columbia—has explored progressive solutions to global sustainability issues.
In 2006, he co-founded Terreform ONE (which stands for Open Network Ecology), a Brooklyn-based non-profit think-tank dedicated to boundary-breaking ideas of how humans can live, work, and get around in better harmony with our planet. Joachim and Terreform ONE have been widely lauded for their work in the realms of sustainable habitat—including Fab Tree Hab, a housing concept that creates dwellings out of living trees—and for pioneering a new profession they have dubbed “Urbaneering,” which will reinvent the concept of urban planning.
