The University of California, Berkeley College of Environmental Design will collaborate with the University of Hong Kong’s Faculty of Architecture to form a multi-year research studio program to develop strategies for a more resilient resilient urban environment for Hong Kong and across the Greater Bay Area. Specifically, they will develop solutions to integrate the linked issues of transportation, ecologically-focused and pedestrian-driven planning of public and waterfront spaces, and sustainable management of water infrastructure and natural resources.

Through a comparative analysis of innovative strategies of the San Francisco Bay Area, cross-disciplinary teams in the faculties of architecture, landscape architecture and urban design will shape a vision to influence a clear policy for Hong Kong’s long-term sustainable growth.

This endeavor begins on May 10, 2018 from 3-6 p.m. with a CED Talk titled “CED Talk: Pacific Rim – Urban Resilience by Design,” raising questions about urban futures. All are welcome to join in 170 Wurster Hall.
