AIA-NJ President Jack Purvis, AIA, and the Sustainable Design Action Team (S-DAT) will present work from their public charrettes at Camp Osborn, Brick Township, New Jersey.  Much of Camp Osborn was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, with fire ravaging the homesites after the storm surge ended.  AIA-NJ provided design assistance to the residents and community to consider ways to rebuild in a more resilient manner.

Verity Frizzell, AIA, will present a number of design options to consider for homes along the Jersey Shore.

This is an interactive discussion and all are welcome.
