It has been a busy fall for Boston Architectural College's adjunct faculty member Susan Pranger, MDS '15, AIA, LEED BD+C, who teaches "Greening Existing Buildings" in the BAC's Sustainable Design Institute and the Traditional Building course in the Master of Design Studies Historic Preservation program.

Susan was recently published in High Profile, a facility development trade publication, highlighting her expertise in sustainable design and historic preservation. Her article "What Will it Mean to be Green in the 21st Century?" discusses how today's buildings must be more resilient in the face of climate change. As the article explains, building a resilient community is key to our survival and will require an unprecedented level of global communication and cooperation. Susan explores the challenges and positive impact of resiliency; be sure to check out the full article online.

She is also speaking at ABX 2015, the leading building industry event in the Northeast. The session that she is participating in, "Resiliency Planning for Historic Building: Impacts and Choices," will explore how changes in temperature, humidity, precipitation, and extreme storms could affect brick, wood, and other historic materials.

Boston Landmarks Commission, an agency that Susan has been a member of for 15 years, is hosting the panel.
