Resilient Buildings

Mitchell Joachim (credit: Maryland Institute College of Art)

What if you didn't need drywall and metal for constructing a building but could utilize biological materials instead? Maybe you would like to live in a tiny Hobbit-house? That is exactly what future-thinking architect Mitchell Joachim is exploring with his concept of: Don't build your home, grow it. Joachim is a founder of TerraformOne, a radical attempt to combine art, architecture, urban, and ecological features into building design projects. The sustainability and resilience of cities may begin to take on many new shapes and forms if any of his ideas become widely adopted. WHB
