AIA Honolulu, the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects, is this week kicking off a design symposium themed “Building Voices: Livable Cities & Communities.”

It’s done in conjunction with CSI Hawaii, the Hawaii Architectural Foundation, AIA Hawaii State Council and the School of Architecture at the University of Hawaii Maoa.

Architect Chris Hong joins Chad Blair on the Pod Squad to talk about why it’s important to develop communities that are resilient to climate change and offer affordable housing.
