Fearless Resilience: Gaining Confidence in the Resilient Project Process


Join us to learn about key new resilience resources: the AIA Resilient Project Process Guide, the ROI: Codes, standards and reporting supporting resilient design, and the ROI: The economic case for resilient design. Complementing each other, these resources highlight the attributes of resilient and climate-adaptive design, while envisioning how to convey the importance and thus achieve climate-adaptive outcomes across the different phases of design. In this interactive session, you'll select questions related to current projects, discuss how you've used similar questions in the past or how you might use them in the future, and share experiences in resilient project design processes.

Learning objectives

  • Learn about the role of architects in designing for climate change and providing health, safety, and welfare in a rapidly changing environment
  • Discover the fundamentals of resilient and climate-adaptive design and apply these concepts to a current project
  • Explore the underlying stresses that may exacerbate the impact from sudden shocks, such as severe weather or geophysical events
  • Examine questions focused on hazard, climate, vulnerability, risk, and consequence
  • Understand how to use key talking points to clients to convey the importance of the role of the architect in implementing resilient design outcomes
