CCNY’s event on Febraury 9 will examine storm protection opportunities that incorporate multiple infrastructure systems.

“After experiencing two destructive tropical storms in as many years, New York City finds itself forced to adapt to the reality of catastrophic weather events resulting from climate change. However, it cannot rely on simple fixes. Rather, it needs to create new urban landscapes with the capacity to negotiate social, cultural, and environmental forces, argues Denise Hoffman-Brandt, associate professor of landscape architecture in City College’s Spitzer School of Architecture.”

The event runs 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday, February 9, at the Spitzer School of Architecture, 141 Convent Ave., New York, N.Y. 10031. It is free and open to the public. Attendees are requested to RSVP on the event Facebook page.
