Description

This is the third in a series of FREE web seminars sponsored by the AIA Residential Knowledge Community that will explore the ways that architects use research to enhance the health, safety, social, economic and environmental performance of buildings as well as the experiences of housing residents.

Experts in research on resilient building practices will explore their research on design and strategies that mitigate the impact of natural disasters. Stephen Schrieber, FAIA will discuss, "Mitigating the effects of hurricanes on marginal housing in Florida", which will focus on the effects of wind and flooding on mobile home parks in south Florida, with a particular emphasis on the design of manufactured housing and communities. David Perkes, AIA will discuss his research on the response of various building systems to infiltration during flood events.
