DJ Spooky hosts Design With Life: Terreform One

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

As part of Microsoft’s Sustainability Speaker Series, TED Fellow, ecological architect, and mad scientist Dr. Mitchell Joachim of Terreform ONE brings together a candid crowd of experts to talk about the future of sustainability and his mission to use the power of design to combat planetary extinction. His 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. 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.

This series is moderated by Paul Miller AKA DJ Spooky and sponsored by The Microsoft Garage.
