Thorsten Johann at National Building Museum's Climate Action Building Community Program

Presented in Partnership with C40 Cities, this inaugural public program will discuss how the organization’s Reinventing Cities initiative seeks to transform underutilized sites around the world through sustainable and community-focused building projects to drive decarbonized and resilient urban regeneration. Assemble Chicago will be presented as a case study of sustainable development, alongside Porte de Montreuil, the first net-zero carbon neighborhood in Paris, in a conversation moderated by Susan Piedmont-Palladino, architect and director of the Virginia Tech’s Washington Alexandria Architecture Center.

Tickets to the live online Reinventing Cities program November 16 are available here and students are invited to attend for free. Full program recordings are accessible to the public free of charge on the Museum website — — 10 days following the live presentation.
