Allan Shulman and Alum Isaac Stein Featured in Vanity Fair Article on Climate Change
In addition to our Professor Allan Shulman and alum Isaac Stein, this article mentions our UM colleagues Ben Kirtman at  Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science and Hal Wanless from the  College of Arts and Sciences

"Allan Shulman, one of South Florida's most celebrated architects (among his commissions is the Soho Beach House, a hotel and members' club just south of the Fontainebleau), noted that one emerging trend in his f ield is to adapt to, rather than mitigate, the effects of rising waters. For some architects and developers, he said, sea-level rise is actually viewed as a design opportunity to be exploited. Whereas, in the past, builders bristled at mandates from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to place new buildings on foundations a few feet off the ground, there is now a movement afoot to allow builders to go higher than the FEMA mandates. The expanded, heightened ground-floor space of a building might then become, Shulman said, "more of an indoor-outdoor area that is actually quite pleasant to be in, a kind of leisure space that's more common in tropical cultures around the world.""  Read more.
