Resilient Urbanism is a collaborative blog that seeks to explore a wide spectrum of topics related to what makes resilience in urban contexts unique: housing and land challenges, equity, density, governance, construction markets, and other characteristics related to the unpredictable and ever-changing urban environment. Therefore, blog posts will represent multiple disciplines and attempt to describe resilient urbanism through a variety of scales and time frames.

Resilient Urbanism is a platform to share discoveries, road test ideas, keep in touch with others in similar fields, and to occasionally perhaps have a bit of a rant. The core authors, having all met through practice, are a group of friends and colleagues who share similar interests and enjoy a good (slightly geeky) discussion. This blog provides a space to bring together some of these conversations, along with on-going research, and attempts to bridge thinking from academia and practice.

We will continually invite guest authors to join us in this exploration, and we warmly welcome comments and discussion. If you would like to contribute to this blog as a guest author then please get in touch by contacting us at ­­resilienturbanism@gmail.com.
