Critical Conversations: Climate change, migration, urban risk, and cities.presented by Studio Completiva
Humanitarian crises such as globalization, war, and climate change are driving a surge in housing needs for migrants and refugees. This accelerated demand for housing, resource supplies, and social and health services puts pressure on many urban centers, heightening risks and vulnerability for incoming migrants and the existing populations.
Three panelists explore the difference between “an architecture for refugees” versus a holistic approach that integrates sustainable housing solutions, human services, and economic opportunity for incomers. In particular, as professionals how do we prepare for this influx by developing physical and non-physical environments that provide both sustainable solutions that help people not only survive but thrive?
