Taming the Beast in the Age of Climate Disasters

Description
This session may be the great-great-great-grandchild of the original "Is CNU Burning?" debate. However, while in the past conversation was focused on the more academic argument about architectural style, this session starts with the premise that developers are the ones who build towns, not planners and not architects. The discussion will investigate the extent to which architects and planners can help developer clients build better architecture that works within production builder logistics and budget requirements. Are CNU members willing to embrace aesthetic eclecticism? And will this create places people will love, as well as places developers are willing to build? Is there a way that the craft and form that satisfies the discerning aestheticist can simultaneously satisfy concerns with sustainability, equity, and building codes? And how does this fit now in a world that is confronting the very real challenges of climate change?
