Course : Community Resilience and Practice
Time : Thu. 16:00~
Course Objective -> syllabus
Resilience to be considered as one of the defining issue of this century. There are changes already in motion such as climate warming and other conditions arising from chronic urban stresses such as high unemployment, extreme wealth discrepancies, violence and water shortages that are increasingly difficult to mitigate against. These are happening with such acceleration that many societies are caught out with insufficient time and other resources to adapt in a seamless and timely manner. On this course, We will explore many ways that architectural academics and practicing architects are engaging with issues of resilience and study emerging knowledge to set it in a theoretical context.
Course Description
Resilience will be a defining quality of the twenty-first century. As we witness the increasingly turbulent effects of climate change, the multiple challenges of resource depletion and wage stagnation, we know that our current ways of living are not resilient. This course takes community resilience as a transformative concept to ask where and what architecture might contribute. Bringing together cross-disciplinary perspectives from architecture, urban design, art, geography, building science and psychoanalysis, it aims to study multiple perspectives of research, spatial strategies and projects that are testing how we can build local resilience in preparation for major societal challenges, defining the position of architecture in community resilience discourse.
