On May 30, 2013, a program organized by The Museum of the City of New York and co-sponsored by the Architectural League, brought together several individuals who were close to the Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic to celebrate her impact on New York City. Hilary Ballon, Stanton Eckstut, Donald Elliott, Lynne Sagalyn, and Suzanne Stephens reflected on Huxtable's deep influence, and her complex and insightful views on preservation and development in the city. Over the course of the panelists' wide ranging discussion, a sense emerged of Huxtable's "clear-sighted vision for the humanistic meaning and artistic power of architecture and the built environment," as Ballon summarized.
Climate Change will have a direct impact on our urban forests; the change in temperature and precipitation will shift the suitable habitat for virtually all tree species. Utilizing West Philadelphia as a lens to examine these changes the video not only explores the impacts of climate change but also how we can adapt the urban forest to the coming challenges. The video has five chapters: 00:00 Benefits of the urban forest 08:20 Impacts of climate change 14:02 Relationship between trees and urban poverty 16:28 Design strategies and interventions 21:00 Conclusion
