Microsoft's Sustainability Speaker Series to Present Mitchell Joachim

This Wednesday, Mitchell Joachim, Founder of Terreform ONE will talk about the future of sustainability and his mission to use the power of design to combat planetary extinction, as part of Microsoft's Sustainability Speaker Series.

Mitchell's new book, Design With Life, written with his co-founder Maria Aiolova, looks at acts of ecological design that showcase the potential of designing with nature, not against it. From worm-eating styrofoam incinerators to butterfly sanctuary double-skin facades and cricket sex pods, Terreform One shows us some of their most radical visions for ecology's role in the survival of our planet. The book is a compendium of Terreform's work to date, a look at how biological processes can create resilient answers to tomorrow's most pressing urban challenges.

Joachim and Aiolova will be joined by Dr. Peder Anker and author Charles C. Mann to discuss how biological processes can create resilient answers to tomorrow's most pressing urban challenges.
