Lindsay Brugger

As Vice President of Urban Resilience, Lindsay Brugger leads the Urban Land Institute’s Urban Resilience Program. Through research, technical assistance, convenings, and outreach, ULI’s Urban Resilience Program helps ULI members, the public, and communities across the globe make buildings and cities more resilient to the impacts of climate change. Prior to joining ULI, Lindsay was the Director of Resilience Knowledge and Engagement at the American Institute of Architects. During her tenure, she championed resilience, climate adaptation, and disaster assistance; co-creating tools and resources such as the Resilience and Adaptation Education Series, The Architect’s Guide to Business Continuity, and the Disaster Assistance Handbook to help AIA’s 95,000 members build new skillsets, integrate resilience into practice, and support their communities pre- and post-disaster. A licensed architect and certified passive house consultant, Lindsay’s resilience journey began while volunteering with Architecture for Humanity DC where she co-founded and directed the Resilience by Design program to provide technical assistance, organize educational offerings, host convenings, and promote the value of a resilient built environment. Lindsay received a Master of Architecture and B.S. in Architecture from Roger Williams University; as well as the Alpha Rho Chi Medal for her leadership and service.
