TEDxEastHampton - Luc Wilson & Muchan Park on the Bridge to Governor's Island

Muchan Park and Luc Wilson received MArch degrees from Columbia University, GSAPP where they researched and developed a flexible design system founded on a holistic approach to housing, development, the environment, energy and natural disasters. This design system, Zoning Information Modeling (ZIM), allowed them to speculate, visualize and evaluate the future of New York City through the creation of Lower Lower Manhattan (LoLo). With ZIM they speculated on many possible futures and put forward not a single rigid solution, but a versatile system that responds dynamically to emerging issues and opportunities. As a tool for developing LoLo, ZIM integrates zoning and building codes, linking them to visualization software in order to spatialize quantitative factors such as value, environmental performance and policy for qualitative design iteration.Currently, they are expanding ZIM as X-Information Modeling (XIM) by leveraging social, economic, and environmental data for the strategic integration of the diverse and often competing objectives of development, sustainability, zoning, and style. As Advanced Information Modelers at KPF, Park and Wilson are developing XIM through projects in New York, London, and Shanghai. At GSAPP they teach in the housing studio, assisting Laura Kurgan and as CURE Research Fellows are continuing their work on LoLo, and are applying XIM to the Low Line project, and the development of Long Island City.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together and share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x= independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (* Subject to certain rules and regulations)
