Resilient Design: Adapting for an Uncertain Future

Each fresh disaster and each sign of global warming—whether rising seas, recurring drought, or melting permafrost—makes the urgency of resilient design more emphatic. Resilience is sustainability for an unstable world. Coastal cities like Boston face a unique set of challenges. This Record on the Road examines resilient strategies currently being implemented in architectural, landscape, and planning projects across the city.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe resilience strategies for protecting vulnerable coastal areas from severe winds and floods.
  2. Discuss the relationship between green building measures and resilience strategies.
  3. Identify building code and zoning guideline changes to address coastal resiliency.
  4. Explain how adopting resilience strategies can preserve existing neighborhoods and rethink open space.

Seating is complimentary but limited.
