Viewing the present through the future, by Caroline Korsawe
"Joachim embraces the future by specializing in dreaming up environmentally sustainable cities. He is part of Terreform ONE, a nonprofit group specializing in such themes."
"With the majority of the world's population now living in cities, Joachim believes it is important to understand the consequences human civilization has on the world's ecosystems. He designed a future model of Brooklyn for the DOX exhibition."

THE FUTURE OF THE FUTURE - Terreform
Urbaneering - Our primary assertion for this future city in
Brooklyn is that all necessities are provided inside its accessible physical borders. We have designed an intensified version of Brooklyn that supplies all vital needs for its population. In this city, food, water, air, energy, waste, mobility, and shelter are radically restructured to support life in every form. The strategy includes the replacement of dilapidated structures with vertical agriculture and housing merged with infrastructure. Former streets become snaking arteries of livable spaces embedded with; renewable energy sources, soft cushion based vehicles for mobility, and productive green rooms. The plan uses the former street grid as the foundation for new networks. By reengineering the obsolete streets, we can install radically robust and ecologically active pathways. These operations are not just about a comprehensive model of tomorrow’s city, but an initial platform for discourse. We think the future will necessitate marvelous dwellings coupled with a massive cyclical resource net. The future will happen, how we get there is dependent upon our planned preparation and egalitarian feedback.

At a meeting at
The work for this on-going urban project is fundamentally based on the activist notions of self-reliance in the profound writings of Henry David Thoreau, Bill Mollison, Buckminster Fuller, and William Mcdonough.
"This project is a rich source of interesting ideas of real substance. The research team is not afraid to think in whole new directions and presents a range of visionary potential approaches that are already acting as catalysts in the urban development debate." - JURY
The winners were selected by interdisciplinary and international jury of leading architects from different parts of the world, an engineer, a representative of the UN, and the CEO of the Zumtobel Group, including:
Stefan Behnisch, (Chairman) Architect / Behnisch Architects,
Yung Ho Chang, Architect, Head of Department of Architecture / Massachusetts Institute of
Brian Cody, Engineer, Chair of the Institute for Buildings and Energy,
Colin Fournier, Architect /
Andreas Ludwig, CEO Zumtobel Group, Dornbirn (
Enrique Norten, Architect / TEN Arquitectos,
Anna Tibaijuka, General and Executive Director / UN Habitat,
“I am delighted that, in their selection this year, the jury have sent out a clear signal that smaller projects which adopt innovative approaches can also prove an important source of inspiration. We need to look beyond our current needs and see the challenges of the future in their full context, as is reflected in the winning project in the "Research & Innovation" category," explained Zumtobel Group CEO and jury member Andreas Ludwig.
The winner in the category “Built Environment” was HARMONIA 57 by Triptyque. In the category "Research & Initiative", honorable mentions went to a rural student project at the University of Talca in Chile; a cross-border exchange programme and symposium "Political Equator II" (Estudio Teddy Cruz) involving the USA and Mexico; a highly poetical idea for an office and studio building in Columbia (Husos Architects); and a master plan for a wind park in the North Sea (Office for Metropolitan Architecture) that aims to meet the entire electricity needs of the Netherlands.

A meat home on the renewable range
by Christopher Hume
Sat. Jan. 23, 2010, Toronto Star
"Joachim, his partner architect Maria Aiolova, and the firm he co-founded, Terreform One, are dedicated to the proposition that being sustainable is not enough. It's time, they say, for North Americans to start giving back to the environment."
