|All divisions and TERRE-formative operations were founded by Mitchell Joachim and Maria Aiolova in 2006. After having completed his PhD at MIT and achieving emeritus status from a series of luminary architectural offices (I.M. Pei, Frank Gehry, Moshe Safdie), Mitchell founded the group with Maria, a fellow graduate from Harvard. Our unique name was derived from the combination of the words: "terre" (earth, soil) and "reform" (rebuild, reconstruct, recreate). The original use of the term "terraform" in planetary engineering was a process of transforming the atmosphere to create a more habitable living environment. Instead of a contrived copy of the earth elsewhere, as the definition of "terraform" commonly implies, we seek to reform the earth in place. Our intention is to repair the atmosphere of our world by fostering designs that reform the current pollution causing global trends.

|DONATE TO OUR NONPROFIT|
|Terreform ONE [Open Network Ecology] is a non-profit design group that promotes smart design in cities. Through our creative projects and outreach efforts, we aim to illuminate the environmental possibilities of New York City and inspire solutions in areas like it around the world. We are a unique laboratory for scientists, artists, architects, students, and individuals of many backgrounds to explore and advance the larger framework of socio-ecological design. The group develops innovative solutions and technologies for local sustainability in energy, transportation, infrastructure, buildings, waste treatment, food, and water. These solutions are derived from the interface of design, science, engineering and synthetic biology.
The organization is structured into six divisions:
1. Terre ONE – [Open Network Ecology] Main Center.
2. Terreform ONE – Architectural and Urban Research Hub.
3. Terreform ONE Lab –School for Design and Science.
