Climate and Adaptation

01.07.2014  Symposium Climate and Adaptation

Climate change affects regions and cities worldwide on different scales and with a different impact. Which consequences will climate change have on architecture and urban development in the future? How can architectural design processes be adapted to climate change? What are the adaptation strategies and what are the benefits?

How can climate oriented design strategies be integrated into the legal and political system and who is responsible for advancing it? Which adaptation measures are effective and which tools can be developed? Does climate change have the potential to create opportunities? The symposium will focus on the interdependencies of design strategies, adaptation methods and policy making.
