Group 3 Copy Created with Sketch.

The driver of sustainability is vitality and the driver of resilience is disturbance. What then, do we, as design professionals, need to consider or adapt in our design process to incorporate both of these concepts? We believe we must embrace the core principles of holistic design, triple bottom line, lifecycle, and systemic approaches to infrastructure. By that we mean each infrastructure system (water, waste, power, transportation, park, etc.) needs to be designed to be both resilient and sustainable. In this session, panelists will present where we are now, the basis of design, and achieving adaptation through case studies and projects from around the world. The panel will explore conflict, coexistence, and collaboration between various design disciplines and the relationship of sustainability and resilience.
