The Brooklyn Paper
By Kate Briquelet, published 8.25.2011
Curved buildings with mushroom roofs! Giant 3D printers spewing out ships! Swarms of high-tech workers making electric cars! It’s all part of “Super Dock,” a futuristic science park designed by radical eco-architects Mitchell Joachim, Maria Aiolova and Nurhan Gokturk of Planetary One, an urban design firm on Flatbush Avenue. “There are no walls,” Joachim said. “We’re merging architecture and land into the water. The entire area becomes a ballast for Brooklyn, so it can absorb water, clean it and filter it back into New York.” Joachim believes that the 12-by-8-foot prototype is not too ahead of its time.
The Victor J. Papanek Foundation at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the Austrian Cultural Forum New York, and the Museum of Arts and Design announced, Mitchell Joachim of Planetary ONE + Terreform ONE as the Winner of the Victor J. Papanek Social Design Award for the Project; Urbaneering Brooklyn in the Design for the Real World Redux International Design Competition.
