LECTURE | Urban Climate Design for Cooler and More Thermally Equitable Neighborhoods with Paul Coseo, PhD
Dr. Paul Coseo is an Assistant Professor, Sustainability Scientist, and Licensed Landscape Architect at ASU’s The Design School.
He is an optimistic designer and researcher with a love of urban landscapes and weather. Growing up in metro Detroit, he witnessed how social forces drive not only the development of great public spaces but also urban decline that leads to extreme environmental inequity. At ASU, he examines the intersection of urban climate and design through ecological, climate justice, and social learning lenses.
Currently, Paul manages several transdisciplinary projects that illustrate his design and research approach. Most of his projects bridge disciplines and universities often involving city or non-profit partners. Paul’s work spans from building scale efforts to examine heating and cooling of various roof materials in the Sonoran Desert to neighborhood scale projects where he listened to Chicago, IL residents about heat coping strategies to city-wide climate action planning processes at how best to manage extreme heat and cold in Tempe, AZ and Buffalo, NY.
