How can our cities, buildings and landscapes adapt to a hotter, wetter future? This talk will examine a range of projects and plans close to home and around the world to design buildings that naturally cool themselves, recycle existing materials, are protected from rising floodwaters, and in other ways allow us to live and work in sustainable and environmentally responsible ways. Presented by Lee Bey, photographer, writer, lecturer, and consultant. He is the former Architecture Critic for The Chicago Sun-Times, now a member of that Editorial Board, and Adjunct Professor at Illinois Institute of Technology. Bey’s writing and photography interprets the built environment, and the often complex political, social, and racial forces that shape spaces and places.
