In the wake of natural disasters like the Oklahoma tornadoes or Superstorm Sandy, how can cities better plan for potential, high-damage situations? How can we better design buildings and city spaces to withstand these acts of weather and effects of climate change?

Northeastern faculty approach these topics from engineering, architecture, environmental, biological, and sustainable perspectives.

And it’s not just about withstanding disasters – sustainable design can marry industrial and community spaces and create a better, mixed use of urban real estate.
