[Re]silient Design

One application of sustainable resilience in the built environment is bridging the community’s history with its future. Infusing existing structures with adaptive systems that extend beyond a single program definition offer a unique opportunity. Revitalizing a community through the experience associated with its physical structure can fuel the other aspects of a resiliency. The adaptive systems offer a long-lasting benefit in that they enable the facility to evolve and remain relevant with changes in potential program use.  Finally, designing systems to reflect effective conservation measures enhance the viability of the facility to remain as an active, relevant element in the community.
