Extreme Heat: Hot Cities–Adapting to a Hotter World was a symposium about one of the most challenging urban problems. It featured a full day of speakers with nearly 30 speakers. Sponsored by AIANY’s Design for Risk & Reconstruction Committee, which is focused on creating awareness of the potential for a natural or man-made disaster to occur, and to inform and train design professionals and the broader risk-aware community on how to mitigate, adapt, and recover rapidly from disasters.

In support of this symposium, we designed the identity, promotional materials, collateral for the symposium event, and a booklet that summarized the symposium.
