Climate Change in NYC: Bridging Science and Practice

June 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Confronting the challenges of a rapidly urbanizing world threatened by climate change requires expanding on the traditional influence and capabilities of architects, landscape architects, and urbanists. Climate science, natural systems, and compact urban forms must be integrated to configure dynamic, desirable, and healthy communities. 

The program’s panel members will draw from their contributions to the publication Climate Change and Cities (Cambridge University Press, 2017) by the Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN), and to the recent publication Climate Resiliency Design Guideline by the NYC Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency. Case studies and evidence – based factors will be used as tools to assess ways of mitigating the impact of climate change in New York City.

The point of the panel is to bridge science and urban design practice and to endorse the potential for urban design workshops to conceive climate – embedded prototypes for implementation at the urban district scale.

The event is free for AIA members, ASLA members, and students with valid ID and is $10 for general public. The registration link is provided on the official website under the event description.
