A range of natural disasters can directly or indirectly result in extended power outages. Ariane Laxo of HGA (above) joins leading sustainable design and resilience experts in this session focusing on designing buildings that maintain habitable conditions in the event of extended loss of power—when building occupants may need to shelter in place.

Speakers will highlight why power outages often accompany natural disasters, metrics that measure passive survivability, future climate projections in modeling building performance, and design features that enhance passive survivability.

Building Resilience 2019 is sponsored by Building Green, The International Living Future Institute, and the Resilient Design Institute.
