Terreform ONE is the Winner of Architizer A+ Award for Architecture/ Climate Change for the Monarch Sanctuary.
"The Monarch Sanctuary, a project by Mitchell Joachim and Vivian Kuan of the nonprofit research group Terreform ONE, proposes a New York building with a double-glass facade. Inside the cavity between its two skins is a 30,000-square-foot sanctuary—in the form of a vertical meadow with regulated temperature and humidity—where threatened butterflies can breed during their annual migration."
