- Jeffrey RavenAffiliated withSustainability + Planning + Urban Design + Architecture Email author
As communities strive to meet the challenges of changing global conditions, urbanists are called upon to shape built environments that can adapt and thrive in the changing global conditions, can meet carbon-reduction goals, and can sustain urban populations in more compact settings by providing amenities that people need and want. This paper explores urban design strategies to strengthen urban resilience through a systemic, interconnected public realm to achieve reduced energy loads, cleaner air and enhanced civic life.
