Solid Resilience: Between Pragmatic and Projective Design Thinking in Miami

Description: 

The project Solid Resilience acknowledges an obligation to confront the blasé attitude towards architectural decisions responsible for shaping our environment. Architecture must acknowledge an evolving ecological dialogue; capable of developing strategies and techniques that anticipate dynamic and active environments. The project Solid Resilience takes a bold approach to this problem by establishing the design process through the lens of ecology, material, and resource.

This course offers a dialogue on the project’s exploration for a new model of residential design established through innovative and resilient construction methodologies, focused sub-tropical formal strategies, and contextual empathetic design-decision making. Hosted by Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN)

Learning objectives

  • Be introduced to the emerging mass-timber building assembly cross-laminated timber [CLT] and understand its inherent ecological characteristics.
  • Understand essential parameters of resilient design as described through a building's material assembly and its active exchange with energy.
  • Understand the process of performative design through a comparative analysis of building assembly types.
  • Identify performative design parameters of building through the application of sub-tropical design strategies.

This session was recorded live on December 2, 2020.
