Preservation, Resilience, and Sustainability in our Architecture

How does Notre Dame’s School of Architecture address the issues of climate change confronting our world, using the lens of the built environment? Though we live in a society and a culture that may often be focused on the new, we can respect the legacy of which we are stewards, and understand the value of that legacy, when we realize that the “greenest” building is the one that is already built. Hear how the University of Notre Dame is investing in our future with the Michael Christopher Duda Center for Preservation, Resilience, and Sustainability – the only center of its kind in the world. Join Stephen Hartley, associate professor of the practice at the School of Architecture, in conversation with Carl Elefante, FAIA, FAPT, former president of the American Institute of Architects and inaugural senior research associate of the Duda Center, and a leading expert in the convergence of historic preservation and sustainability worldwide.
