LOUIS AND THE GREAT LAKES REGION - event DTSTAMP:20170522T192601Z DTSTART:20140731T180000Z DTEND:20140731T220000Z LOCATION:Kemp Auditorium, Givens Hall, Washington University in St. Louis One Brookings Drive St. Louis MO 63108 PRIORITY:0 DESCRIPTION:Join The Buckminster Fuller Institute (www.bfi.org) as we examine the challenges and opportunities facing St. Louis and the Great Lakes region as it seeks resilient solutions to the effects of climate change. \nThis half-day program will explore three approaches at the intersection of art, architecture, design, and science that propose anticipatory strategies for critical urban challenges. First, we will revisit Fuller’s legendary collaboration with Washington University architect James Fitzgibbon – a project proposal for East St. Louis titled Old Man River City. Next we will step back to survey the entire Great Lakes watershed in the context of population growth, development, and climate change, and present a visionary solution for its stewardship. Finally, we will discuss contemporary comprehensive design solutions that present replicable models for the rapidly growing urban centers of America’s Midwest. \nA reception will immediately follow this program.
