Climate Action Planning and City Form
Activity Code: S400
Date: Saturday, April 13
What are the long-term implications of greenhouse gas mitigation on the future form of cities? This session examines case studies and research regarding climate action planning (CAP). Learn why (and how) communities prepare CAPs, how CAP strategies can be integrated into comprehensive plans, and how CAPs are changing the form of cities. Take home practical strategies for crafting CAPs—and a theoretical perspective on their impact on urban form.

Work: Bruce Race, FAIA, FAICP is the principal and founder of RACESTUDIO and is responsible for all aspects of project planning, design and delivery. Since founding RACESTUDIO in Berkeley, CA in 1994, his projects have received 31 design and planning awards including national awards from the American Institute of Architects, American Planning Association, Environmental Protection Agency and Society of College and University Planning. The Long Range Development Plan for UC Merced received a national 2012 AIA COTE Top Ten Green Projects Award. In addition to maintaining an active national urban design practice, he is a professor, doctoral candidate and columnist. Bruce is the Associate Professor of Practice and a full-time faculty for Ball State University’s Master of Urban Design program in Indianapolis. His design talent, practice experience and research interests intersect in his classroom studios where he emphasizes design innovation and comprehensiveness. Bruce is a PhD candidate in the Welsh School of Architecture at Cardiff University. His research focuses on the impacts of climate change mitigation and adaptation on the future shape of cities. Bruce is the urban design columnist for the Indianapolis Business Journal. Bruce Race is one of very few planning and design professionals in the United States that have been elected to fellowship by both the American Institute of Architects (FAIA) and American Institute of Certified Planners (FAICP). In 2012 he received the Planning Sagamore from APA Indiana recognizing his accomplishments “as a model planner before the public and the planning profession”.
