At this workshop, members of the Engineered Worlds research team gathered to complete a draft of a co-written book on the concept of "Terraformations." The manuscript was written in a single voice and aimed to problematize the concept of the “environment” in light of planetary-scale industrial aftermaths. The book also offered a new methodology for studying these monumental problems.
