Last time on Building Resilience we wrapped up construction and wondered if what we did really qualifies as resilient construction.
Fortunately, there’s a benchmark that we can use to see how we stack up. And that’s what we’re covering in this episode, using the Resilient Design Institute’s Ten Resilient Design Principles as a guide.
1/ Resilience transcends scales.
2/ Resilient systems provide for basic human needs.
3/ Diverse and redundant systems are inherently more resilient.
4/ Simple, passive, and flexible systems are more resilient.
5/ Durability strengthens resilience.
6/ Locally available, renewable, or reclaimed resources are more resilient.
7/ Resilience anticipates interruptions and a dynamic future.
8/ Find and promote resilience in nature.
9/ Social equity and community contribute to resilience.
10/ Resilience is not absolute.
And there we go. one year after filming began, the show is wrapped. Watch all of the episodes of Building Resilience.
