Designing Resilience for the 21st Century


AIA Wisconsin

Communities face shocks and stresses: acute and chronic threats posed by natural and human-caused hazards, climate change, the degradation of natural resources and population growth. The AIA supports and empowers members to create sustainable, resilient and adaptable communities through the power of design.

This year’s full-day workshop on “Designing Resilience for the 21st Century” offers AIA Wisconsin members and allied professionals an opportunity to gather resources to effectively address these emerging issues, advocate for policies that support new practices and provide greater value to clients and communities.  

The workshop features presentations by Doug Farr, FAIA, on sustainable design tools, James Wasley, on ecological stormwater management, and Tate Walker, AIA, on the lessons learned from high-performance projects. It also includes architect-led tours of the UWM School of Freshwater Sciences as well as the nearby Global Water Center and Reed Street Yards development.

AIA members will be able to earn up to 5.5 learning unit hours related to health, safety and welfare (HSW).

We look forward to seeing you on Friday, October 26, at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.

Robert Wheat, AIA, Thomas Hirsch, FAIA & Amy McNally, AIA
