How Do We Build Resilient Communities For The Future?

To answer this question, we spoke with Dr. Phill Tabb, Professor Emeritus of Architecture at Texas A&M and the author of multiple publications on topics such as solar energy, green architecture and sustainable urban design. His most recent work, Biophilic Urbanism: Designing Communities for the Future, explores the tools to create nature-based urban environments that are climate positive, sustainable, and healthy. In this episode we discuss the five positive outcomes of biophilic urban planning, the factors at play when scaling biophilic principles from the individual to the community to the city-wide level, and we’ll dive into the mystery of ‘thin places.’
