The-Wharf-District-Pier-at-night.gifDevelopers PN Hoffman and Madison Marquette, partners on The Wharf project in Southwest D.C., consider sustainability and resilience good allies for the bottom line. Katharine Burgess, director of the Urban Land Institute's Urban Resilience Program, Hilary Bertsch, principal at Perkins Eastman, Matt Steenhoek, Vice President of Development for PN Hoffman and the Associate Project Director for The Wharf, and Elinor Bacon, president, E.R. Bacon Development, discuss The Wharf as an exploration of questions around resilience in the built environment and solutions that designers and developers are uniquely positioned to offer. A reception follows, sponsored by PN Hoffman.

The Economics of Resilience is part of AIA Northern Virginia's Women in Architecture series, presented in partnership with the National Building Museum. You'll find information about the other programs in the series, and speaker bios, here.
