We’re very pleased to announce the addition of three very important professionals to the official 2012 LAGI design competition jury.

Mitchell Joachim & Maria Aiolova are the Co-Presidents of Terreform ONE and Partners at Planetary ONE. From their site:

Terreform ONE is a unique laboratory for scientists, artists, architects, students, and individuals of all backgrounds to explore and advance the larger framework of green 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.
