Communities today face a complex range of social, environmental, and economic challenges. Many communities are seeing that new ways of addressing these challenges are needed, approaches, which acknowledge the interrelated nature of these issues. A focus on “resilience” can provide that lens and framework. Along with creating the ability to respond to shocks and threats, resilience is about increasing a community´s capacity to respond proactively and enhance well being even while under stress. A focus on resilience emphasizes the dynamic nature of communities and the fact that they are always changing.
This publication offers multiple perspectives on how to make cities more resilient by a collection of essays by renowned academics and design experiments by talented students. By this initiative we hope to strengthen our ties and encourage the academic debate on the topic from an educational point of view.
