The Seed Salon

Thomas E. Lovejoy + Mitchell Joachim

Since 1965, when Thomas Lovejoy began exploring biodiversity in the Amazon, he has worked to defend ecosystems against human impact. Mitchell Joachim creates human habitats and transportation systems — and believes that ecology can inform a new, more resilient, ethos of design. When the two met recently in Manhattan, the ideas flew: from victory gardens to vertical farms, senators in the jungle to students toting trash. And from their discussion, a critical question emerged: Are we a society of Homer Simpsons
or WALL-Es?

To read the full Salon, order Science is Culture: Conversations at the New Intersection of Science + Society - out October 12.
