Metropolis Think Tank Discussion

  • Perkins + Will 1250 24th Street Northwest #800 Washington, DC, 20037 United States (map)

Join Metropolis' Susan S. Szenasy and Perkins+Will for a Think Tank discussion on The Role of Community in Designing for Resilience.

One year after Hurricanes Irma and Maria took their devastating tolls on Puerto Rico, the island is still struggling to recover. To respond, a new global alliance of designers, engineers, academics, nonprofits, and citizens promises to help Puerto Rico recover and thrive, donating time and resources toward a comprehensive resilient planning and design strategy. This Think Tank will explore that alliance—known as Resilient-SEE—and reveal how it and similar partnerships between private companies, public institutions, and individual community members can lead to social, environmental, and economic resilience—not just in Puerto Rico, but anywhere in the world.
