The Boston Globe Sunday Magazine took a cold hard look at the city, what we can expect and what we need to do to prepare for the eventuality of sea-level rise and storm surge. The author looked to Joyce Klein Rosenthal (assistant professor of urban design) for an expert view of changes necessary to protect Boston. As co-coordinator of the Master in Desingn Studies (MDes) Risk and Resilience concentration Rosenthal knows climate change and sustainability; she also knows Boston’s history and values.
