On Bees, Pollinators, and Insect Wonders with grOCAD

Terreform ONE (Open Network Ecology) is a New York-based design group that promotes environmentally conscious urban planning. Its projects are an exciting mixture of architecture, landscape, urban design, biology, engineering and art and it is dedicated to finding innovative solutions for sustainability in energy, transportation, city infrastructure and waste management. The works featured in this exhibition at Onsite [at] OCAD U highlight Terreform ONE’s interest in incorporating living organisms in design, and advancing the notion of sustainability beyond a popularized mainstream rhetoric. www.terreform.org

Lecture with Nikki Musina on Bees, Pollinators, and Insect Wonders with grOCAD
From the aquatic environment of Lake Victoria in Kenya to an agricultural operation in an almond field in California to the tomato plants in your own backyard, insects are teaming in every ecosystem across all geographical settings. Their importance is manifest in their roles in pollination and the sustaining of food webs, their interactions with plants leading to close-knit evolutionary co-developments, and their many political and ecological entanglements. Come learn about the insects that support and change our planet. Hosted by Alex McLaren and Che Chi Liu of grOCAD.
