Resilience Theory and Praxis: a Critical Framework for Architecture

Topics: Critical Infrastructure Theory,

In this piece, the authors consider the growing emphasis on resilience in the field of architecture, comparing and contrasting it with existing frameworks grounded in other disciplines, including engineering, ecology, psychology, and economics. The result is a proposed pivot towards a more holistic, multidisciplinary social-ecological form of building resilience that encourages architects' creative approach to human-building interaction, but which also accounts for a world of increasing uncertainty.
