Session Narrative

In a world threatened by global warming and relentless population growth, the fundamental role of architecture as “shelter”      must be redefined.  A review of recent disasters - earthquake, wind, fire and flood - demonstrates that buildings often do not survive, and in fact endanger their occupants, just when safe refuge is needed most. Resiliency defines the ability of buildings to maintain critical life-support conditions for occupants when services such as power, fuel, or water are lost for an extended period. Learn how architects can evaluate threats, then use advanced design and engineering techniques to create survivable, sustainable and beautiful buildings.


Learning Objectives

1.     Design buildings which deliver emergency operations for extended periods of time, long after onset of an emergency.

2.     Dramatically improve workplace quality by using extended survivability strategies such as daylighting and natural    ventilation.

3.     Improve building energy-efficiency, substantially reducing energy costs and making LEED certification easier.

4.     Take specific and useful steps on your next project which will create the opportunity to utilize extended survivability and improve service to your clients and society at large.
