WHAT CAN WE DO?
Leveraging our Role as Architects to Shape a More Resilient Future
Albert Garcia, AIA and Christine West, AIA, KITE Architects
As architects and others in design and construction, we generally have an informed perspective on resiliency, yet it can often be frustrating or overwhelming to see real change given the confined scope of our responsibilities, or fundamental obstacles in the way of our efforts. The principals of KITE Architects will talk about strategies and opportunities they have found to have an impact, both large and small, from the intentional to simply fortuitous. They will highlight projects ranging from massive infrastructure improvements to work with non-profits to single family housing, and fuel a discussion on what we all can do to make a difference.
