dc.description.abstractThe increasing demand for resilience design raises a new challenge for architects. Because of the dominant understanding of resilience as the ability to respond to natural disasters and the climate crisis, the focus has been limited to the engineer-oriented incident-dependent aspect of resilience. The resilience that is mostly mentioned in the architecture industry falls in this narrow concept of resilience. However, the definitions of resilience have been extended, and a diversity of discourse on resilience has also been developed in other disciplines. A broadened domain of resilience in architecture must be addressed on different scales, with different considerations regarding material and immaterial aspects. On one hand, the material aspect includes any engineering approach of resilience and digital design and fabrication. On the other hand, the immaterial aspect needs to cover the relevant social, cultural, psychological, economic concerns. By asking questions like what the system is resilient to, how to respond to external impact, and to what extent resilience exists (To resist? To recoil? To reconstruct? To adapt?), four different explorations have been elucidated in different scales, to examine the widened perspective of resilience in architecture design.
