Thinking “green” is so yesterday. Welcome to today’s thinking.

Terreform ONE [Open Network Ecology] is a non-profit  philanthropic design collaborative that integrates ecological principles in the urban realm. The group was formed for the advancement of socio-ecological science and the dissemination of this knowledge through diverse projects.  In furtherance of these sustainable intentions, the group has created a unique laboratory for scientists, artists, architects, students, and individuals of all backgrounds to explore the larger framework of green design.  We are currently working on innovative processes and appropriate technologies for local sustainability in such matters as energy, transportation, infrastructure, buildings, waste treatment, food, water, and media culture. Our goal is to illuminate the environmental future of New York City and inspire solutions in areas like it around the world. [from the website’s about us section]
