Urgent Architecture
Where:  New York, NY - Van Alen Books, 30 West 22nd St, Ground Floor (map it)
When:   Friday, March 08, 2013

The last decade has seen a shocking increase of natural disasters around the world. We can hardly stop these disasters from occurring, but we can work to protect ourselves through stronger homes. Urgent Architecture: 40 Sustainable Housing Solutions for a Changing World is a collection of housing projects from around the world that address these disasters either through emergency shelters and temporary housing as part of relief efforts, or through prefabricated, affordable and adaptable houses built to withstand future catastrophes. At this launch event, join author Bridgette Meinhold, Architecture Editor of Inhabitat.com, and fellow Inhabitat staff for a conversation about the book and the growing importance of the role of architecture in natural disasters.
