2019 New Gravity Housing Conference

Temple University
Aug 01, 2019 8:00am - Aug 02, 2019 12:00pm

The reality of climate change will fundamentally alter the way buildings are designed, built, and operated in the coming decades.

At the same time, the need for quality affordable housing that can withstand increasingly extreme and volatile weather continues to grow. Building healthy, safe, and accessible places to live that will both limit and adapt to climate impacts is a key challenge for the 21st century. This cutting edge conference, complete with workshops and tours, will explore the tools, techniques, and practices that the building community is using to address this challenge.
