Design Research for Carbon Removal


As the urgency of climate change creates ecological, economic and social uncertainty, design research will be an increasingly important tool. A new interdisciplinary team — with expertise in landscape architecture, architecture, climate smart agriculture, soils, and life cycle analysis — will hold a series of joint fact-finding workshops with external partners and stakeholders to design prototypes for climate-positive buildings and landscapes for the Finger Lakes region.

Investigators: Jamie Vanucchi, Allison Chatrchyan, Timur Dogan, Maria Goula, Johannes Lehmann
