Event Details

The Resiliency Knowledge Community looks at how our work as architects promotes resiliency in our buildings, in our communities, and in the face of climate change and natural disasters.

In November, Will Martin will join us to give his presentation “From Life Safety to Resiliency: the Contemporary Architect’s role in Afforadable Housing”:

With the death of Modernism, the passing of Postmodernism, and the sabotage of Sustainability, Architecture today stakes it’s limited relevance on it’s long standing monopolistic, professional imperative: life-safety.  This is a crutch.  Luckily for architects, society relies on them to plan and design durable buildings and cities able to defend against crisis that are uncertain and rare — natural catastrophes of fire, wind, or flood.  Sadly for society, architects broadly ignore other crisis that are certain and pervasive — socio-political catastrophes of climate change and affordable housing? To be relevant in the future, architecture needs a new professional imperative: resiliency. In this talk and discussion we will collaboratively mine the conceptual framework of resiliency to develop a critical and focused understanding of a more expanded and tactical role architects can play in combating the affordable housing crisis (we will save the climate crisis for another day).
