AIA New York is seeking co-chair applications for the Design for Risk and Reconstruction (DfRR) Committee. The committee harnesses the design community’s expertise to address disaster mitigation and adaptation in situations caused by major events that threaten people in the built environment, such as major storms, extreme heat, climate change, sea-level rise, terrorist attacks, etc. The committee’s mission is to foster awareness within the profession and the public of the necessity of anticipating risk at multiple scales, from a single building to comprehensive regional planning.
