Climate ABC: Reinventing Cities

Tuesday, November 16, 2021
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Climate ABC Rectangular LogoJoin us for Climate ABC (Action/Building/Community), a new signature series focusing on three essential aspects to addressing climate change: Actions by individuals, businesses, non-profits, policy makers, and civic entities; Building -- examples of both physical structures and landscapes, as well as coalitions of stakeholders; and Communities at every scale that are working to slow climate change.

This timely and important series’ inaugural public program, “Reinventing Cities” is presented in partnership with C40 Cities -- a network of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change. This program will discuss how the organization’s Reinventing Cities initiative seeks to transform underutilized sites around the world through sustainable and community-focused building projects to drive decarbonized and resilient urban regeneration. Two timely case studies of sustainable future developments in Chicago and Paris will be explored --  Assemble Chicago, that city's first zero-carbon apartment building, and Porte de Montreuil, the first net zero-carbon neighborhood in Paris. Susan Piedmont-Palladino, architect and director of Virginia Tech’s Washington Alexandria Architecture Center moderates a discussion with Hélène Chartier, head of zero carbon development, C40 Cities; Thorsten Johann, Assemble Chicago design principal, Studio Gang; and Yvan Okotnikoff and Aurelien Delchet with Atelier Georges. These future projects are real-time examples of ground-breaking developments designed to meet the urgency of building industry climate action.

This program will be presented live via Zoom. Once you complete your ticket purchase, you'll receive a confirmation email containing the link to attend the webinar.
