Global Design NYU: Mitchell Joachim's Traveling City [VIDEO]
Called a "visionary" by Popular Science magazine, Joachim designs practical but disruptive technologies that reevaluate how people live and work together in cities. In his talks—and in his lectures as a professor at NYU and the European Graduate School—he presents the possibilities that exist in a world where biology and architecture have come together as a combined entity. At the design event, the work of Joachim and the other designers have attempted to do just that: come up with new sustainable technologies that are both aesthetically pleasing and engaging for the community. The TED Fellow is dedicated to exploring the possibilites that exist at the intersection of construction and sustainability. His work sparks conversation, stimulates new ideas, and inspires audiences to think about the future of urban life.
