New York Post: Terreform 1 at MEx

GREEN ACRE A HUB OF ECO-FRIENDLY ENTREPRENEURS GROWS IN BROOKLYN by Dan Avery, New York Post, 4-13-09. With Attara, who has a background in design, Interboro soon founded the Metropolitan Exchange (MEx), a community-minded co-op that offers office space to other architects, urban planners and researchers with a progressive bent. Among them is Mitchell Joachim of the nonprofit ecological design firm Terreform 1, whose visionary ideas for re-imagining cities -- like the City Car, a stackable car made of soft materials, and an airborne transit system using low-hanging blimps -- recently earned him a spot on Wired magazine's Smart List and Rolling Stone's 100 People Who are Changing America. http://www.nypost.com/seven/04132009/jobs/green_acre_164229.htm
