A+E (architecture&ecology) Cornell Summer 13
Two Week Project with the Great Dr. Mitchell Joachim (Terreform One, NewLab, OneLab) was about exploring the compatibility of ecology and architecture, and its implementation on the highly critical Brooklyn Queens Expressway (BQE) built by the master builder Robert Moses in the 60s.
Flora Fauna Hybrids (Anatomical Sections)
Living systems (both of fauna and flora) were studied and an attempt to combine them was made. It resulted in a possibility of mutation systems that take the best of both creatures and form its own genotype.
Automated Permaculture - Robert Moses REMIX
The BQE represented a global predicament that epitomizes the accelerated deterioration of nature and the ecological balance. Time was projected a century further and the possibility of an automated system that responds to the toxic conditions of the environ as a repercussion to the toxicity of the obsolete technology and the suppoting infrastructure was conceived as a design reality.
Sectional Cut through the BQE and its mechanized outgrowth shows a variety of activity mostly led by robots that synchronize and attune themselves to optimize the ecological healing in the wake of the 2120 C.E. disaster
