In the aftermath of the storm of the century, cities throughout the Northeast are looking at how to prevent damage from future cases of extreme weather.  This talk will explore the complexity of climate change and rising water levels, reviewing how architects and preservationists can incorporate features to protect historic buildings from these dangers and see how they relate to the Landmarks Law. 

Panelists include: Rob Rogers, principal at Rogers Marvel Architects, a firm dedicated to critical design thinking in the public and private realms; Rob Pirani, Vice President for Environmental and Energy Programs at the Regional Plan Association; Alex Herrera, Technical Services Director at the New York Landmarks Conservancy; and Michael Devonshire, Senior Architectural Conservator at Jan Hird Pokorny Associates, Inc.
