Since its inception, GLOBAL DESIGN NYU (GDNYU), which was founded by NYU Gallatin professors Peder AnkerLouise Harpman, and Mitchell Joachim in 2011, has created exhibits and symposia that showcase leading-­edge, environmentally-­oriented design practices from around the world.  GDNYU’s previous exhibitions, Elsewhere Envisioned, took place in New York and London, attracting significant notice in the professional and popular press. Writing in Architect’s Newspaper, Julie Iovine described the GDNYU offerings as “marvelous” and an “all‐too-­rare look at assorted contemporary efforts.” Anker, Harpman, and Joachim are the authors of Global Design (Prestel, 2014), a book that examines the possibilities for scaling design solutions in response to global warming.
