Just Announced! U.S. Representative Earl Blumenauer to provide opening remarks!
The Urban Land Institute, Metro & The Evergreen State College Center for Sustainable Infrastructure presents “Infrastructure Crisis, Sustainable Solutions,” an event series that will examine the effects of climate change on the region’s infrastructure and how investments in sustainable energy, water, transportation, and waste management can address urgent environmental challenges and foster healthy and livable communities.
Monday, April 4 | Next Generation Infrastructure with Hillary Brown
In Next Generation Infrastructure: Principles for Post-Industrial Public Works, Hillary Brown highlights how land use professionals can adapt holistic approaches and systems-thinking to make smarter decisions about revamping outdated infrastructure.
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.
