The acceleration of climate change and climate migration has created an unprecedented diversity of challenges that our built environment and communities must face in the coming decades. This acceleration is matched by a growing diversity of research and design efforts to counteract these challenges—both in academia and practice—centered around concepts of resiliency. This conference invites practitioners, scholars, and policy leaders engaged in shaping the future of resilience to identify challenges shaping the built environment, as well as the emerging tools, methods, practices designed to address the challenges ahead. We invite projects engaging all scales and domains of environmental, architectural, landscape, and urban design, including the design of resilient materials, environmental systems, assemblies, buildings, neighborhoods, cities, and ecosystems. We additionally invite contributions on the design of resilient research methods, engagement strategies, disciplinary metrics, and public policies.
For this conference, there will be 4 tracks focused on RESILIENT FUTURES. Respondents should identify one of these 4 tracks that most relate to their research while completing their abstract submission.
