Part of the lecture series, “AEC Industry Experiences from COVID-19: What We Did | What We Are Doing | What We Need To Do” which is addressing past, current and future initiatives, constraints and budgets. This series is being organized to identify how best to restructure our operations and how to design, construct, and manage buildings, infrastructure, and civic spaces, emphasizing social impact, sustainability, resilience, and public health, in addition to cost, schedule, quality, and safety. 

In November 2010, Catherine Barbé joined the new state agency commissioned to design and implement 200km of new metro lines around the Paris Metropolitan area: the Société du Grand Paris. She is responsible for the development of partnerships with all metropolitan institutions and stakeholders, especially in relation to urban development. From November 2001 to June 2008, Catherine Barbé was the director of the Paris Department of City Planning. Ms. Barbé also studied at the Institut d’études politiques de Paris and the national school of administration (ENA) and is a qualified architect. In the context of COVID-19 lessons about teleworking, her talk will describe the Grand Paris Express infrastructure planning to reduce climate change impacts through providing an alternative to private car use. It will also discuss the economic opportunities and social equity benefits anticipated through connecting communities.
