Students considered what role can design play in preparing for disaster, drawing from research results provided by the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility. Students looked into three New York-specific disasters: 1) Hurricane Sandy, 2) Blackouts in 1977 and 2003, and 3) September 11 terrorist attacks.

Place: School of Constructed Environments, Parsons School of Design
