Interview in one of Israel's leading newspaper on urban adaptation projects 

Dalia Munenzon is an assistant professor of urban design in sustainable communities and Infrastructure at the University of Houston Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design. With a background in urban systems design, environmental planning, and architecture, she works with local communities to create resilient cities and urban environments. Munenzon's current research explores the use of climate adaptation as a means for transformative actions in the urban realm, including the study of infrastructure systems, co-design of visions, and analysis of regulations and policies required for implementation. She aims to further the discourse on design as a multidisciplinary exchange between communities, cultural practices, regulatory complexity, economy, landscape, and the built environment. Munenzon holds a Master's in Architectural Studies from MIT and a Bachelor's in Architecture and Town Planning from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. With over a decade of professional experience in architecture and urbanism, she has contributed to many high-profile, award-winning projects such as the Climate Ready Boston Downtown, East Boston, and Island End River Resilience study. Prior to joining the University of Houston Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design, she taught at the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University, the Rhode Island School of Design, and has been a guest juror for architecture programs at MIT, RISD, Harvard GSD, Syracuse, Cooper Union, UC Berkeley, RICE, and others.
