Over the last two months spent at home, many of us have realized what architects and urban planners have long known to be true: our well-being is tightly linked with the physical places we live, work, and play.
In cities, particularly those in the desert Southwest like Las Vegas, pressing challenges like sustainable mobility, climate change, and now a global pandemic are forcing us to change the way we think about space and urban design. How can we build more resilient cities from the ground up? And how can make sure urban transformation is socially inclusive?
Learn more about this topic at a special virtual edition of Science Distilled, featuring a talk and Q&A with Dr. Steffen Lehmann, Director of the School of Architecture at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. He’ll explore the challenges facing our cities and the strategies experts are using to design healthier, happier, and more sustainable built environments.
