Climate as a Design Challenge
24th November 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Campus OWL New York Office, the OWL University of Applied Sciences and Arts, the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, and the German Center for Research and Innovation (DWIH) New York invite you to a live web-talk on: Climate as a Design Challenge
There is no doubt about climate change and the negative effects on the urban habitat. It’s not an abstract concept or notion anymore, but a perceivable reality that has a huge impact on the way urban designers and landscape architects and architects have to design future cities. Hotter temperatures, heavy rain events, rising sea levels can be seen as a threat but also as a design challenge. How do universities contribute to this challenge in their urban design studios? How do students contribute to the complexity of climate change and climate adaptivity? What are their game-changing ideas and design solutions for cities to tackle climate issues? How do young professionals integrate nature-based solutions for climate resilience? And how will the design process in urban planning change facing the current challenges?
