Mitchell Joachim


Co-founder of US design collective Terreform One, American architect Mitchell Joachim is a leading figure in ecological design and urbanism. He was named in US-based Wired magazine’s Smart List: 15 People the Next President Should Listen To (2008). 

Terreform One (Open Network Ecology) is a not-for-profit design collective that promotes urban environmental design. Concepts designed by the group include the Fab Tree Hab – a home that is not built, but grown, creating an ecologically sound building that is completely integrated into its surrounding environment. Through buildings such as these, Joachim believes a zero-impact city is possible within the next century.

Joachim will be appearing at Assemble, the Crafts Council conference, discussing synthetic biology and the importance of craft in developing materials for the future. The event will be held on September 20 at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in London.
