What is the responsibility of the Architect and allied professions in focusing on Resilience and Adaptation to create/enhance Resilient Communities? What is the role of the architect and allied professions in protecting health, safety and welfare?

Climate change renders many areas in California, the country and the world virtually uninhabitable, or at higher and higher risk. In this Urban Design Townhall, made in partnership with the Resilient Design Committee, attendees will learn the importance of incorporating resilience and adaptation into daily practice. This conversation will explore resilience and adaptation in design, such as ethics of rebuilding in hazardous areas, how to prepare for greater density needs due not only to the housing crisis but to inevitable climate migration, and best ways to shift the systems building and regulating construction to a resilience model.
