Organized in collaboration with the AIANY Puerto Rico Taskforce, AIANY Planning and Urban Design Committee, and AIANY Design for Risk and Reconstruction Committee.
This interactive forum will bring together voices from various front-line community groups, design professionals, and more to present and discuss a comprehensive view of the post-disaster challenges that architects and planners must help address in Puerto Rico and the region. Presentations will be made on best practices and lessons learned Post Hurricane Maria, where the need to rebuild has become an opportunity to build at higher levels of resilience and sustainability. Participants will discuss and propose strategies to reshape infrastructure that may ultimately result in new planning and design principles that can be translated to the Caribbean, New York City, and beyond.
