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.


The Future of Food hosted by Paul D. Miller

1Future, Paul D. Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky, and the Alchemist's Kitchen; A discussion with leading creative voices engaging with the issue of climate change. As we amplify the connection between creativity and science, we will create a path towards solutions. Visionaries from the world of food and entomophagy discuss the next frontier in food: nutritious and sustainably farmed, insects.

Storefront for Art and Architecture Manifesto Series: At Extremes with Mitchell Joachim of Terreform ONE

Each iteration of Storefront’s Manifesto Series invites participants to denounce a present or past condition, proclaim an alternative present, past or future situation, and indicate a strategy or method of action.

Jordan Carver, Mitchell JoachimJanette Kim, Lola SheppardAndy Vann, and Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss

About the Book:
Bracket is an almanac that highlights emerging critical issues at the juncture of architecture, environment, and digital culture. The series looks at thematics in our age of globalization that are shaping the built environment in unexpected yet radically significant ways.


Intelligent Infrastructure: Zipcars, Invisible Networks Urban Transformation

University of Virginia Press released "Intelligent Infrastructure: Zipcars, Invisible Networks Urban Transformation" by Therese Tierney with an essay and cover by Mitchell Joachim, Terreform ONE. 
This book argues that knowledge of both the visible and invisible components--information, energy, sustainability, transportation, housing, and social practices--are critical to understanding the urban environment. The dynamic and diverse cast of contributors includes Mitchell Schwarzer, Frederic Stout, Anthony Townsend, Carlo Ratti of the MIT SENSEable City Lab, Mitchell Joachim of Terreform ONE, and many other innovators who are changing the urban landscape.

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.
