GLOBAL Design NYU, which brings together designers, scholars, and innovators, showcases design research as it relates to visionary architecture, landscape architecture, urbanism, and ecological planning through exhibits and speaker series.
The project is headed by three Gallatin School faculty: Peder Anker, who authored the From Bauhaus to Eco-House: A History of Ecological Design, among other works; Louise Harpman, a principal in the architecture firm Specht Harpman, named one of New York City's Top 100 architects and designers by New York magazine; and Mitchell Joachim, co-founder of Planetary ONE and Terreform ONE, nonprofit organizations and design groups that integrate ecological principles in urban areas.
