Lecture at MFA Boston with Mitchell Joachim

The Esther Steinberg Memorial Architecture Lecture, Post-Sustainability: Thinking Big with Mitchell Joachim at the MFA:


Super Cells: Building with Biology by Nina Tandon and Mitchell Joachim

In a tour of the new biological frontier, Nina Tandon and Mitchell Joachim describe the tantalizing array of inventions already being created with nature’s elemental building block: the cell. Imagine personalized bone replacements, living condominium complexes, bacteria-made haute couture, and top sirloin grown without a farm. Tandon and Joachim, daring inventors in their own right, contend that we’re entering a new technological era, one in which we can create smarter technologies by making cells our partners in design. And they confront the thorny questions that come with playing with the power of life.
