GSD Presence at Your Harvard: Miami 2017

Members of the Harvard community gathered in Miami on Thursday, February 16, to hear from Drew Gilpin Faust, President and Lincoln Professor of History, Harvard University, as she shared her vision for the University’s future and its global impact. Attendees included GSD students in the option studio “Sea Rise and Sun Set: Modeling Urban Morphologies for Resilience in Miami Beach,” led by Charles Waldheim, the John E. Irving Professor of Landscape Architecture, who were in Florida studying the effects of sea level rise on Miami Beach.

The evening featured an intriguing faculty conversation that examines what the power of observation and reconstructing the past can tell us about our future, from making sense of matter and seeing things before unseen to genomics research with Hopi Hoekstra, Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology; Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology; Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology; Curator of Mammals at the Museum of Comparative Zoology; Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Jennifer Roberts, Elizabeth Cary Agassiz Professor of the Humanities.
