To battle natural hazards, interdisciplinary research team turns to resilient, sustainable buildings
A team of Northeastern researchers has received a National Science Foundation grant to develop a decision framework for designing buildings that are both resilient and sustainable in the face of multiple environmental hazards like earthquakes, flooding, and heavy winds.
Experts from academia and the public and private sectors converged at Northeastern for a daylong symposium focused on how to design sustainable cities for the future.
