Engaged Futures – Plenary

2022 AIA/ACSA Intersections Research Conference: RESILIENT FUTURES


From the viewpoint of various scales, from planning to ADU design, resilience through client engagement will be explored in this session. Learn how architects and architectural students can be advocates for both their clients and for improved policies and codes. See how a design/build studio is helping to improve policy decisions on the ground as a direct outcome of student project work.

Learning objectives

  • Explore scales of engagement with design stakeholders from community and urban planning to site design and incorporating feedback.
  • Discover how architects can partner with municipal officials to improve outcomes during and after natural disasters.
  • Learn about efforts to mitigate urban cloudburst flooding and improve urban infrastructure responses.
  • Consider resilience from the scale of individual site designs in historic urban districts.
