Using Design to Combat Extinction: A Conversation with Mitchell Joachim
It has been said that the goal of architecture is to improve human life but throughout history, built environments and urbanization have destroyed natural ecosystems. The balance between meeting the demands to house the growing population of the world and reducing harm to habitats has proven mostly elusive in practice.
Last winter, Bard MBA Alum, Konstancja Maleszynska spoke with Dr. Mitchell Joachim, Co-Founder of Terreform ONE a nonprofit architecture and urban design research-based consulting group. They talked about how pioneering acts of design can combat extinction and illuminate the environmental possibilities of habitats, cities and landscapes worldwide.
