Description

There is no cost to attend the event, however registration is required because we will be providing lunch, coffee, and snacks.

When Hurricane Sandy made landfall in October of 2012, more than 186 people were killed, over 600,000 homes were damaged, and infrastructure was devastated across New York State. During the “Snowvember” storm in November 2014, 70+ inches of snow fell in Western New York, causing 14 fatalities, and numerous roofs to collapse. These two events suggest that building design in New York needs to shift to address varying weather patterns caused by climate change.

This symposium draws together academics and practitioners from the Northeast and Great Lakes regions to discuss contemporary thinking in climate resilience applicable to New York State. The symposium will address questions like:

  • How do built environment professionals respond to a changing climate?

  • How is the building stock adapting to climate change in New York State?

  • How is resilience currently being addressed by built environment professionals?
