Learn how cities can face the challenges of climate change at Building Resilient Cities with Matthijs Bouw, an internationally renowned Dutch architect.

As cities increasingly face more challenges from climate change, leaders are looking at how to plan around inadequate infrastructures. Bouw will discuss “the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses and systems within a city to survive, adapt and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience.”

This free event will be held from 6 – 8 p.m., Thursday, March 21 at the Plaza Library, 4801 Main St., Kansas City, MO. Wine and cheese will be served at 6 p.m. with the presentation beginning at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are recommended at Kansas City Library or 816-701-3407.

Bouw is the founder of One Architecture & Urbanism, an award-winning design and planning firm with offices in New York, NY and Amsterdam, Netherlands. His presentation will be co-presented by the Kansas City Design Center and the City Manager’s Office of Kansas City, MO.
