Symposium on Resilient Design
Feb 22-23rd, 9:00 -5:00
Resilient design and resiliency directed design is becoming part of local, regional and global professional practice. While definitions are still emerging, a working statement by the Resilient Design Institute provides a starting point by stating that “it is the intentional design of buildings, landscapes, communities, and regions in order to respond to natural and manmade disasters and disturbances—as well as long-term changes resulting from climate change…” We seek to improve on this statement through understanding by examining state of the art practice and its outcomes.
Resilient Design: State of the Art & Emerging Issues will bring together leading professionals involved in the design, and making of buildings, landscapes places to present their resiliency work, to think about the future and to debate the most pressing issues. Professionals from leading firms such as AECOM, Perkins+Will, ARUP, SWA, Waggonner & Ball, Bay Area Resilient Design Challenge, and the Cuningham Group have already committed to participate. This is an exciting and confusing time as all of us try to understand the ways in which resiliency operates and also how it serves the professions and more importantly: society.
