The working definition referenced above is the thread that we used to tie together the content of four sessions and frame discourse at the 2018 AIA Intersections Symposium on Design and Resilience. Three separate, but related, contextual frameworks- Technological, Ecological, and Sociological – provided a platform for a fourth discussion that addressed synthesis and action. Offered as part of the 2018 AIA Conference on Architecture and curated in collaboration with a cohort of moderators, this format represents a radical departure from previous Intersections Symposia. With an articulated mission of bridging the gaps that exists in education, research and practice, the Intersections Symposium is a joint venture between the AIA and ACSA. The move to construct the 2018 symposium as a constellation of sessions delivered throughout the programming of the AIA Conference promised to broaden discourse and make a forum more accessible to the voices who will reinforce the connections between practice and the academy.
