In a year with wildfires raging in the West, extreme flooding from Hurricane Harvey, and what may become widespread damage from record-setting Irma, the need for architects to include climate factors in their infrastructure design becomes even more pressing.


We are pleased to announce that Tim Owen, climate scientist and Chief of Staff at NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), will speak about climate change and extreme events at the 3rd Annual American Institute of Architects – Climate Adaptive Design Symposium, in Asheville, NC November 3, 2017. The NCEI’s role in the National Climate Assessment helps Americans prepare for the worst of climate change impacts, severe weather, extremes of temperatures, prolonged and intense droughts, and extensive flooding. NCEI explains extreme events from a climate perspective.  Register here
