Architecture + Prosperity

This session is part of the 2019 Summer Professional Development Series.

Society is facing an increasing number of challenges in the 21st century. Human-induced climate change is causing extreme weather events with more frequency, threatening natural ecosystems and human settlements. Conventional fossil fuels are being depleted and irresponsible resource extraction is causing catastrophic damage. Rapid urbanization is introducing new social and health challenges for people, while deteriorating urban infrastructure is in need urgent renewal. Architecture and related design professions must rise to these challenges through resilient and sustainable design. Yet, design solutions are not enough. The design professions must also work with partners to cultivate collaborative research. Buy-in from local governments and the public will be necessary to implement strategies that enable collective prosperity.

This session will discuss architecture’s impact on cities and society as well as sustainability and resiliency. Environmental stewardship, sustainable urbanism, economic development and adaptation are all essential components to ensure a sustainable built environment.
