The NYU Gallatin Climate Change Initiative: A Conference

Co-sponsored by Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, NYU Department of Anthropology, Health and Environmental Reporting Program, and The Climate Working Group
When it comes to climate change, the work of scientists is conclusive: in the past half-century, that work has produced a widely accepted consensus that the planet is warming and that humans are responsible. Though scientists must continue to monitor the amount of warming and to track its effects, climate change is a complex problem whose unfolding will reach beyond such analysis. Recognizing this, scholars in fields other than the natural sciences have recently begun to mobilize their disciplinary expertise to respond to climate change.

DETAIL Congress: Transformation - Architecture in Change in Frankfurt

Society is changing, and so is urban space. Individualization, hybridization, and fragmentation processes are also increasingly manifest in the physical space: shopping malls, urban entertainment centers, gated communities, urban gardening, community housing and gentrification processes characterize and alter the urban space. Architects, city planners and the municipal administration must, therefore, reflect the status quo critically and shape change. For urban space is only viable if the stock is intelligently transformed and the new is integrated sensitively. Strategic strategies for urban, rural and infrastructure, which are resilient and socially compatible, are necessary.

New book: School of the Earth 2061


Anker, Peder and Mitchell Joachim (eds.) School of the Earth: Gallatin Reimagined 2061, CreateSpace.

School of the Earth is a vision for what the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University should be like in 2061 at Albert Gallatin's 300th birthday. The envisioned new school is designed with our planet in mind. It is a building designed to fit the local ecosystem. This book was born from a dedicated class of students lead by professors Peder Anker and Mitchell Joachim. Humans have done enough taking, the students argue, and it is time to start giving back. Giving back to our planet and each other. The world is more connected than ever before and it is only going to become increasingly more intertwined and complicated. School of the Earth is about the necessity of connection, not only from human to human but between nature and people as well. The new vision for the Gallatin School is complete with visionary images and a model created to educate students and the public that not only is it possible for humans to exist while giving back, but that we can help make the planet a better, healthier place for the future as well.

Imminent Commons: Urban Questions for the Near Future at New Lab, Terreform ONE


Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2017

Imminent Commons: The Debates Part I

Alejandro Zaera-Polo, Beatriz Colomina, David Benjamin, Jesse Le Cavelier, Keller Easterling, Laura Kurgan, Maider Llaguno, Mark Wigley, Martino Stierli, Mitchell Joachim and more.

Within the scope of the Seoul Biennale of architecture and urbanism 2017, co-directed by Alejandro Zaera-Polo and Hyungmin Pai, Actar publishers and urbanNext are going to promote the publication "Imminent Commons: Urban Questions for the Near Future”, three months before the international conferences and exhibitions. 

Seoul Biennale proposes a set of basic commons—an evolving network of agencies, resources, and technologies—as the critical issue in the move towards a sustainable and just urbanism. As an alternative to the modern city, the Seoul Biennale proposes 9 commons—four resources of air, water, energy, and earth, and five commonalities of connecting, making, moving, recycling, sensing—as the foundation of a new urban cosmopolitan. The Seoul Biennale presents these intertwined commons as technologies, practices, and spaces that traverse institutional and market mechanisms. 

Mitchell Joachim and Christian Hubert. "The End of Waste? Towards a Socio-Ecological Commons," Imminent Commons: Urban Questions for the Near FutureAlejandro Zaera-Polo and Hyungmin Pai (eds.), Actar, 2017, pp. 318 - 333.

Wednesday, June 28th, 6:30-8:30 PM @ New Lab Event Space

Join Terreform ONE and urbanNext for the launch of the book “Imminent Commons: Urban Questions for the Near Future” in NY. There will be a roundtable discussion led by Alejandro Zaera-Polo, with speakers such as Mitchell Joachim, Maider Llaguno and Keller Easterling.

Symposium on Climate Change at NYU Paris

NYU Paris 
A symposium on climate change brings together faculty from NYU Global sites as well as faculty from Washington Square, to explore questions that emerge surrounding climate change and the humanities (very broadly construed).

Participants address climate change under different points of view, with a research in history, literary and theatre studies, cultural studies, the fine arts, anthropology, ethnology, architecture, urban planning, and design.

The goal of this meeting is two-fold: first, to create a conversation about these issues that is high level, small-scale, comparative and interdisciplinary; and second, to build intellectual networks among NYU affiliated faculty in many different locations.

Thanks To: Gallatin Dean Susanne Wofford, the NYU Global Research Initiative, and to NYU Global Programs for their support. Special thanks to our hosts at NYU Paris: Benoit Bolduc Morwena L’Henoret Armand Erba And thanks to Peder Anker, our Faculty Convenor, and to Melissa Daniel and Allison Jungkurth for making arrangements from New York.

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


Mitchell Joachim 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.
