Climate Chaos & Historic Building Environments: The Intersection of Preservation & Resilience

Start Date

End Date

Description
Resilience is the capacity to adapt to changing conditions and to maintain vitality in the face of stress or disturbance. This session will examine hurricane and rising sea level threats to historic buildings and districts and how some communities are attempting to build resilience for their historic waterfronts, including Houston, Key West, Nantucket, Annapolis and Newport.

Deep green rehabilitations for carbon reduction to ¬existing and historic buildings represent our best chance at prevention, in combating climate change. However, developing broader “Action Strategies” provides frameworks for working with climate chaos through mitigation and adaptation.

Presenters will provide three experienced views on mitigation and adaptation for historic places, against situations that pose significant threats with sustained impacts, expected over the next 50 years.
