Avant-Garde Agriculture, Architecture Meet in B’klyn

Futurists’ Workshop Attracts Students From All Over World By Stephen Rex Brown Brooklyn Daily Eagle BROOKLYN — When Dr. Mitchell Joachim appeared on the Colbert Report he was only a short subway ride from his laboratory, where he and a group of fellow futurists envision a world where New Yorkers travel by jet pack, live in tree houses, and wear wristwatches made of in-vitro pig meat. Despite the short trip, Joachim’s moment in the spotlight was a world apart from the Metropolitan Exchange Building on Flatbush Avenue, where he hatches the provocative ideas that earned him a spot on the 2008 “Smart List” in Wired magazine. Now, Joachim’s non-profit group, Terreform One, is allowing a group of 40 students from all over the globe to revel in their world of apparently limitless possibilities, where ideas for urban agriculture seem out of a science fiction novel. http://www.brooklyneagle.com/categories/category.php?category_id=27&id=30264 see more at TerreFarm: http://terrefarm.blogspot.com/
