Mitchell Joachim is an innovator in socio-ecological design, architecture, and urban design and a prominent researcher on resilient cities, and a dedicated architectural educator. For this project presented at the entrance of Faena Hotel Miami Beach throughout Miami Art Week he presents an urban farming system and temporary shelter that minimizes the ecological footprint of protein-rich food production. “Cricket Shelter” proposes an alternative protein resource based on entomophagy using 1% of the greenhouse gas emissions and requiring 0.001% of the land to produce the same amount of protein annually as cattle farming.
