Event description
Shaun Donovan and Kate Orff discuss how to design successful, inclusive urban planning interventions in an era of climate crisis.

About this Event

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the Obama administration launched Rebuild by Design, an innovative design and planning competition for projects that promote resilience in the face of climate change. This event brings together two people closely involved in this effort — Shaun Donovan, the former United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development; and Kate Orff, an Associate Professor at Columbia GSAPP, the Director of GSAPP’s Urban Design Program, and the founder of SCAPE studio. They will discuss how we might design successful, inclusive urban planning interventions in an era of climate crisis. The event will be moderated by Nicholas Lemann, director of Columbia World Projects, and introduced by Carol Becker, Dean of Columbia University School of the Arts.

Check-in will begin one hour prior to start time. Doors will open one half hour prior to start time. Seating is limited and first come, first served. Advance registration does not guarantee seating; early arrival is suggested.
