“House: Stress After Sandy” Panel Discussion

Don’t miss out on this great panel discussion that addresses the importance of how urban design can resolve not only the physical, but also the mental devastation that Hurricane Sandy was responsible for.

Smashing into housing, health, power, and transportation infrastructures, the historic storm Sandy upended lives and evicted entire communities overnight. Most of the conversations on recovery that followed focused the urban landscape—but what about the mental and somatic ones? In this discussion, urban design and public health experts address the challenges of collective stress and anxiety, and speculate on new ideas toward wellness in rebuilding the New York and New Jersey region.
