Resilient New York: Architecture and Urban Planning in the Face of Climate Change
February 25, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
After Hurricane Sandy, it became clear that New York City, one of the largest cities in the country, was not prepared for rising sea levels, storm surge, and generally, the possible future effects of climate change. Preparing for these future challenges means changing and adapting New York City’s urban planning and architecture. What will these structures and plans look like, and how are they being implemented today?
