    The Great Reset | Series Event 1: Tools for Design Process

    Monday, July 12, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm PDT

    How can Architects most effectively engage Clients and Design Teams to integrate climate and resilience strategies during the design phase?

    Three skilled design professionals will respond to this question with a short presentation, followed by a roundtable discussion and audience Q&A. Join us to hear how these practitioners from a variety of firm sizes and backgrounds adopt new approaches while they adapt to design in the Climate Age.

    This program is accredited by AIASF to provide 1 HSW learning unit to AIA member attendees

    Participants will be able to:

    1. Define design tools and strategies practitioners have adopted in the past year to respond to the increasing disruption of climate change.
    2. Evaluate approaches to integrating climate and resilience strategies during all design phases.
    3. Distinguish between tools or methods appropriate for small projects by individual practitioners and methods used by large design teams.
    4. Engage and motivate Clients and Design Teams to integrate climate and resilience planning in their design projects.
