THE RESILIENT CITY

ABOUT THIS THEME

In many areas of the world, built-up housing environments are becoming more threatened by natural disasters. Architecture which is resilient has a built-in capacity to maintain its structure during extreme circumstances. WDCD will research resilient architecture and take the opportunity to call on participant’s ideas for resilient design.
