BUILDING RESILIENCE IN DESIGN

At the start of the 2018-2019 Academic Year, PennDesign launched its Urban Resilience Certificate. This school-wide Certificate is one of the outcomes of a grant by the Rockefeller Foundation to explore how resilience can be best taught in the design school, and how design can have agency in building more resilient communities, cities, and regions. With climate adaptation and resilience rapidly becoming a crucial driver of any urban project, PennDesign is continuing to advance the research and the resources to prepare the next generation of architects, landscape architects, planners and designers to lead their professions into the future, and to expand collaborative thinking with scientists, sociologists, and other actors participating in the resilience challenge.

To celebrate the launch of its certificate program, and to continue the conversations and pilot courses that have advanced over the last three years, PennDesign is bringing together leading practitioners and academics will present resilience projects and initiatives they are pursuing. These presentations will occur in the three roundtable conversations in which the following questions will be explored: How can design have agency in dealing with uncertainty and risk, while helping to build resilience? What tools and collaborations do designers need to advance our skills? And how can the design school educate the next generation to deal with climate change and other, often related, 21st century challenges?
