The Autodesk Foundation supports the Resilient by Design challenge as it brings together designers and community leaders to safeguard the Bay Area community from the impacts of climate change. A majority of the design teams are using Autodesk tools to craft their solutions and will present final designs on May 17 at the San Francisco Jazz Center. A larger stakeholder meeting and reception will take place on May 18 in Alameda at Rock Wall Winery.
On the 18th, Resilient by Design will be hosting a day of conversations between key stakeholders to reflect on lessons learned, what the region needs, and what actions might be taken during design implementation. The day will wrap up with an evening celebration to announce the challenge winners and launch the next phase. Presentations will run from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, and the celebratory reception will run until 9:00 pm.
The event is open to the public. I will be attending and I hope to see you there.
"Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge is a collaborative research and design initiative that connects design leaders to community members, local leaders and national experts. In a yearlong challenge, ten teams of architects, engineers, designers and other experts will work alongside community members and local government to identify critical areas along the San Francisco Bayfront and propose exciting new solutions that will strengthen our region's resilience to sea level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes."
Resiliency is alive in the lab.
