The 2030 Challenge Workshop Series

.

Climate Change, Survival and Architecture
Dr. Sue Roaf
Workshop 3 of 3, November 7th, 2006

On Tuesday, November 7th at 8:30 AM, Dr. Sue Roaf will explain how one traditional desert society in central Iran successfully adapts to their severe, hot and arid desert biome. Dr. Roaf will examine the longevity of this indigenous civilization and identify those elements which most readily relate our condition here in Las Vegas, and yet help this native culture to not only integrate with its natural context to establish a lifestyle of luxury devoid of fossil fuels. Dr. Roaf will then work with the workshop attendees to gain an understanding of what they feel to be the future challenges the city faces in terms of our lifestyles and the buildings we live in. Finally, Dr. Roaf will work with attendees to see how they might be able to implement action plans in their own lives, and in their own communities, that make them feel less vulnerable to the changes we all face in a world with a changing climate and rapidly rising oil prices. The workshop is designed to be a challenging event that will help progress an ecologically-responsible agenda for buildings and communities in the Las Vegas Valley.
