Intelligent Infrastructure: Zipcars, Invisible Networks Urban Transformation

University of Virginia Press released "Intelligent Infrastructure: Zipcars, Invisible Networks Urban Transformation" by Therese Tierney with an essay and cover by Mitchell Joachim, Terreform ONE. 
This book argues that knowledge of both the visible and invisible components--information, energy, sustainability, transportation, housing, and social practices--are critical to understanding the urban environment. The dynamic and diverse cast of contributors includes Mitchell Schwarzer, Frederic Stout, Anthony Townsend, Carlo Ratti of the MIT SENSEable City Lab, Mitchell Joachim of Terreform ONE, and many other innovators who are changing the urban landscape.

XXL-XS: New Directions on Ecological Design by Mitchell Joachim and Michael Silver, ACTAR




NEW BOOK:
Joachim, Mitchell and Michael Silver. XXL-XS: New Directions in Ecological Design, ACTAR Publishers.

Architecture must not only be functionally green, but its formal, conceptual and physical properties also need to constitute a novel and integrated living material system, one that can flourish within the larger world around it. 

XXL-XS represents the emerging discipline of ecological design by assembling a wide range of innovators with diverse interests. Geo-engineering, synthetic biology, construction site co-robotics, low-energy fabrication, up-cycling waste, minimally invasive design, living materials, and molecular self-assembly are just a few of the important advances explored in the book. At one extreme are massive public works, at the other, micro to nano-sized interventions that can have equally profound impacts on our world. From terraforming to bio-manufacturing, a whole new generation of designers is proposing unique ways of confronting the difficult challenges ahead. In this way design becomes a totality of relationships that affects all disciplines, which can no-longer be thought of as self-contained fields, each handled separately by narrowly focused specialists. Globalization demands a restructuring of the profession, as we know it. This requires a new breed of generalists who can work across fields and engage research on multiple sites around the globe. Today we need planetary designers versed in the craft of integral design.

Our thesis is therefore both global and performative in scope. We need an architecture that is more than just a constellation of bio-picturesque images, digitally generated surface effects, and conventional materials. We seek a holistic architecture that uses the best techniques to connect directly with existing natural systems while creating a renewed ecology that can sustain itself well into the future. Along these lines, many of the projects featured in this book simply abandon the old tropes and construction processes of the past by creating numerous green alternatives that proliferate along unexpected pathways.

Urban Tangle: 2,000 City Grid Fragments Connected by the Public with Terreform ONE


Urban Tangle: Make It Together Network City Map. 2,000 City Grid Fragments Connected by the Public - Terreform ONE
Our project consists of hundreds of machine-milled components made from fragments of city maps. All the physical map elements correspond to variable grid patterns and street patterns of NYU's Global Network sites and three main campuses. Each participating person is asked to build his or her own map of NYU from the randomized city-grid fragments. No answer is wrong, instead it’s a three dimensional artifact of collective memories made of multiple recollections while exploring NYU sites. From Shanghai to New York every student and faculty has a different experience of his or her time at NYU.  This combinatorial sculpture serves as a spatial expression of our multi-cultural and diverse locales. Based on Situationist theory, this mapping concept is a primary method of stabilizing what was referred to as the “spectacle.” It is a compositional assembly of pre-made situations, meant to be collectively composed. These physical moments of life are deliberately fabricated for the purpose of rekindling and shadowing authentic desires, feeling the sensation of life and adventure, and the liberation of routine activities in cities. Our map project is a three dimensional version of a specific Situationist product otherwise called, Psychogeography. Here, psychogeography invented by Guy Debord in 1955 is the, “study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals.” We have moved beyond their original works to celebrate NYU in a similar experiential manner. Yet we still give homage to the achievements of the Situationist International arts group.
