The panelists will demonstrate ways to protect vulnerable communities from extreme heat/cold at the building level, explore methods for linking performance models with GIS to create an urban building energy model (UBEM) to evaluate climate vulnerability more holistically, and highlight through recent case studies how landscape architecture can successfully work with engineered systems to protect and enhance communities to create a vibrant, thriving public realm.
