Conditions Magazine Issue #9 New Knowledge – New Practices? Mitchell Joachim, "Prescience". 



Vice Mag: The Living House

by Jedd Thomas & Alex Pasternack 
Imagine a future where the cities we live in are built in accordance with nature, where buildings are designed to incorporate features from ecological systems without compromising technological innovation or the quality of the environment. If it sounds like wishful thinking – or science fiction – have a look at what Mitchell Joachim is brewing at the architecture and urban think tank Terreform ONE / Planetary ONE. Based in Brooklyn, New York, it’s the first architectural office that works in tandem with a biology laboratory, uniting an ambitious group of architects, synthetic biologists, and urban planners to bring a promising vision of the city quite literally to life.

Metropolis Magazine, Terreform + Planetary ONE

Two thriving design collectives—housed in a nondescript building
Brooklyn—may provide a model for a new way of working.
Over the next five years, the building slowly earned a reputation for being
a place where “smart people just like to hang out,” in the words of Mitchell Joachim, whose urban design nonprofit, Terreform ONE, is on the seventh floor. Joachim, a senior TED fellow, is one of four TED fellows who rent work space on that floor. Other tenants of the sixth and seventh floors include award-winning architects, artists, urban planners, biologists, designers, engineers, a physicist, and a geographer—an impressive collection of talented people by any standard.
