CED Talks | Constructed Water: Above and Below
In this College of Environmental Design take on TED Talks, a professor from each of our four departments gives a 10-minute presentation on the theme of climate justice and water, bringing to light how cultural and material resources shape adaptation strategies.

ABOUT THE SERIES
Living With — and Without — Water
On transforming our built environment to survive a changing climate
As our climate changes, our cities and infrastructure are faced with having too much and/or too little water. Water shortages, drought, sea level rise, and flooding are among the most pressing environmental challenges of our times. In the College of Environmental Design lecture series Living With — and Without — Water, invited speakers investigate the theme of water and the built environment from multiple perspectives and disciplines: architecture, environmental engineering, city planning, landscape architecture, art, and ethnography.
