Kate Orff on Brian Lehrer

Kate talks to Brian about why "trees are a form of civic infrastructure" helping us to keep cool during heat waves and absorb water during heavy rainstorms; and how we need to work together to depave the city and create more contiguous ecologies.

Mission

The Center for Resilient Cities and Landscapes (CRCL) uses planning and design to help communities and ecosystems adapt to the pressures of urbanization, inequality, and climate change. CRCL works with public, nonprofit, and academic partners to deliver practical and forward-thinking technical assistance through interdisciplinary research, visualization of risk, project design scenarios, and facilitated convenings. CRCL integrates resilience thinking into design education and academic programming, bringing real-world challenges into the classroom to train future design leaders.

Established in 2018 at Columbia University’s Graduate School for Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP), CRCL extends Columbia’s leadership in climate-related work and supports the interdisciplinary collaborations and external partnerships needed to engage the most serious and challenging issues of our time.
