GRHC: 2013 CitiesAlive in San Francisco

Held on October 23 -26 in beautiful San Francisco, the 2013 CitiesAlive theme is Securing Urban Resiliency with Living Architecture: Food – Water – Energy

CitiesAlive offers a unique opportunity to explore how we can design buildings and communities focused on resiliency, using innovative tools such as living architecture. In light of extreme weather we must ensure that we are securing urban resiliency in our cities. People must have access to clean water, and secure energy and food.
