Next Generation Infrastructure with Hillary Brown (Seattle)
In Next Generation Infrastructure, Hillary Brown highlights how land use professionals can adapt holistic approaches and systems-thinking to make smarter decisions about revamping outdated infrastructure.
“Next Generation Infrastructure” highlights hopeful examples from around the world, ranging from the Mount Poso cogeneration plant in California to urban rainwater harvesting in Seoul, South Korea, to the multi-purpose Marina Barrage project in Singapore. Five bold organizing objectives are proposed that, in the hands of decision-makers and designers, will help bring about a future of multipurpose, low-carbon, resilient infrastructure that is tightly coordinated with natural and social systems.
As founding Principal of New Civic Works and Architecture Professor at the City College in New York, Hillary focuses on infrastructure as highly connected systems that work better together, resulting in projects that are more cost effective, less environmentally damaging, and more resilient. She currently serves on the National Research Council of the National Academies Board on Infrastructure and the Constructed Environment and is a Fellow of the Post-Carbon Institute.
Join us for an interactive session with Hillary about her new book and vision for the future of infrastructure.
