California Architect’s Role in Climate Resiliency
Brought to you by AIA CA Climate Action Resilient Design Committee and Urban Design Committee
Tian Feng FAIA FCSI | President CAB | District Architect SF Bay Area Rapid Transit District

Since 1857 the AIA has been at the forefront of the built environment, and since 1967, AIA California has been supporting local and regional planning through its Region / Urban Design Assistance Teams in California, as well as across the nation to help create communities that are healthy, safe, livable, and more resilient.
California has been experiencing intensified impact from climate changes to our buildings and communities. As result, there will be both challenges and opportunities for California architects in many ways: design process, stakeholder engagement, code and regulations, standard of care, and design liabilities.
This Townhall will gather practicing architects specializing in resilient design and government policy makers to discuss the roles of California architects can play in advancing California’s ability to adapt, sustain, and thrive in changing climate. The focus of the discussion of this Townhall will be on innovation of design approach and codification of best practices in resilient design for wildfires, flooding, and sea level rise. There will be thought provoking dialogues on how California architects can respond and lead the evolving practice of architecture for climate resiliency.
