March 11 Program

Community & Resilience: Learning from New Orleans 

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. WALK-IN REGISTRANTS ARE WELCOMED AT THE DOOR OF THE EVENT.

New Orleans has a front-row seat to climate change, disappearing coasts, and extreme weather events.  It also is a case study in how community drives resiliency -or (to paraphrase the old saying), how friends will get you through times with inadequate structural protection better than structural protection will get you through times with no friends.  This talk will take a look at how New Orleans actually came back after Katrina and is transforming itself into a 21st century city while preserving its culture, and the role a design firm can play in supporting moves towards a more resilient city.  More specifically, EDR has been developing a ‘resilience toolkit’ for use in its work at scales from individual buildings to urban resilience plans, and will share what it has learned so far in applying this framework to ongoing projects.

SPEAKER
Z Smith, Principal/ Director of Sustainability & Building Performance at Eskew+Dumez+Ripple      

Z Smith has led or contributed to numerous projects across New Orleans designed to promote community, deal with extreme weather events and demonstrate passive survivability, including the Louisiana SPCA Phase 2 Animal Adoption, Health, Education, and Preparedness Center, the New Orleans BioInnovation Center, the JBJ Labs Renovation, the Tulane School of Social Work relocation, and the Keller Library & Community Center.
