Biophilic Cities

A lecture by Timothy Beatley Moderated by Lola Ben Alon

Timothy Beatley is the Teresa Heinz Professor of Sustainable Communities, in the Department of Urban and Environmental Planning, School of Architecture at the University of Virginia. Much of Beatley’s work focuses on sustainable technologies for community development and creative strategies by which cities and towns can fundamentally reduce their ecological footprints, while at the same time becoming more livable and equitable places. Beatley directs the Biophilic Cities Project at UVA, where he leads projects related to the value of nature in the time of pandemic as well as a bi-annual Biophilic Cities Journal. Beatley is the author or co-author of more than fifteen books on these subjects, and he is also co-founder, with Reuben Rainey, of UVA’s Center for Design and Health, within the School of Architecture.

Tech Talks is a new annual event series hosted by the Building Science and Technology Sequence at GSAPP focusing on the implications of materials, cities, and ethics. The talks are followed by a Q/A panel and showcase work on healthy materials, integrated city systems, and sustainable activism in order to solve the profound technological and human challenges of the 21st century.
