What is the architect’s role in resilient design? Our buildings and communities are vulnerable to a wide range of short- and long-term risks from climate change. Climate models show there will be more weather extremes, meaning California faces threats of sea level rise and both drought and periodic extreme rainfall events with the potential for flooding.

These changes in climate patterns will have huge implications on existing buildings and how architects need to think about design and retrofit for increased resilience. This session will introduce architects to the factors they need to consider when designing for future riverine, precipitation, and coastal flooding conditions, and how architects can discuss the design and operational implications with their clients.
