Respecting a City's Roots While Protecting Her Residents with Dana Buntrock From UC Berkeley
September 21, 2018
Buildings are as diverse as the societies that design them. In the face of climate change, some technical improvements are beginning to migrate their way into new locales and uses.
In a recent podcast with MarketScale, College of Environmental Design Professor of Architecture Dana Buntrock explains how climate change is influencing the way we think about architecture and build new buildings.
Throughout the podcast, Buntrock illustrated the various approaches to environmentally-friendly architecture and new theories regarding how individuals think about design and its coinciding usability.
“When it comes to the environmental challenges that buildings face in certain areas, knowing what the historical responses are is really great. But, also understanding what the new technologies are is helpful, too,” Buntrock said.
Buntrock, a Chair of the University of California’s Center for Japanese Studies, is also the author of two books including Materials and Meaning in Contemporary Japanese Architecture: Tradition and Today (2010).
