Resilient shores: After Sandy, climate scientists and architects explore how to co-exist with rising tides
After the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, a team of Princeton architects and climate scientists is exploring a new vision, with an emphasis on living with rising waters. The researchers aim for no less than a reinvention of flood hazard planning for the East Coast.
VIDEO: Class on German Thin-Shell Structures Yields New Exhibit
Professors Sigrid Adriaenssens and Branko Glisic co-taught a course on German thin-shell structures in the Fall of 2012 that has resulted in a new exhibit, "Evolution of German Shells: Efficiency in Form." The exhibit will be shown at the Friend Center Engineering Library.
