Founders and Co-Presidents, Mitchell Joachim and Maria Aiolova were awarded EUR 60,000 from the Zumtobel Group. At a meeting at Roden Crater, Arizona (USA) in February, an international jury selected this year's winners of the Zumtobel Group Award for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment. The award in the "Research & Initiative" category went to the non-profit design group Terreform ONE, jointly founded by Mitchell Joachim and Maria Aiolova, for the project "New York City Resource & Mobility", a visionary plan for New York City that converts waste to buildings and reinvents the city transit system. 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
