ISSUE 16: CLIMATE RISK
An informed approach to resilience
Climate change and associated extreme weather events and changing precipitation patterns mean additional risk to businesses, organizations, healthcare providers, and society. To truly respond to climate change and its side effects, designers must look beyond sustainable design to strategies that enhance resilience over the long haul. Designers and engineers must respond to the disruption of life as we know it by considering how it will affect the resilience of projects in decades to come. In this issue, we look at how we are considering sustainability, resilience, wellness, and extreme weather events in projects ranging from science to high school education to civic buildings.
