Professor Cerra will be a presenter during Design Week Portland on Monday evening, April 7 from 6-9pm during the panel Creative Design Solutions for Community, Infrastructure and Environment: An Evening with Michael Singer and Friends. He will speak about the Climate-adaptive Design studio and efforts to catalyze awareness and action on climate change in municipalities in the Hudson River Estuary north of NYC. By working with municipal and community stakeholders on their vision for a future waterfront in their city through an engaged design process, the Climate-adaptive Design studio is helping communities move forward on planning for climate change now for the benefit of their citizens and the greater ecology. More information about the panel discussion and participants can be found here. Read more
Associate Professor Joshua Cerra’s Climate-adaptive Design (CaD) studio has worked since 2015 to link flood-prone Hudson River municipalities with Cornell University landscape architecture students to envision more climate-resilient and connected waterfront areas. Now a new Request for Proposals seeks proposals from design firms to work with one of these cities to move climate-adaptive design ideas into design development. Link to the RFP here. Read more

We are very excited to announce the release of Professor Gottfried's new book, "Eerie Railway Tourist: 1854-1886, Transporting Visual Culture" from Lehigh University Press. The book explores how the Erie Railway, in developing a series of sophisticated travel guides, made significant contributions to nineteenth-century visual culture and shaped the social life of Americans. In the words of Professor Gottfried, "This book is dedicated to the Cornell University students who enrolled in the course 'The American Landscape'. Your good work helped to round out my view of the subject one square mile at a time."
