HURRICANE-PROOF HOUSES - A DISCUSSSION
AIA course number: URPROOFHSE - Credit Designations: 4 HSW/LU

What about floods? Can we build safely to survive floods of the kind experienced during Katrina, Harvey or Irma? What about the losses of power? Why is it that so few buildings have solar panels integrated in their design and how can we push power companies to let people store power in case of an emergency. This course is about ideas that need to be shared to find simpler solutions adaptable to a wide array of buildings, not only Mac-Mansions but also low-cost housing,
