Resilience in architecture is the design and planning of adaptive cities to sustain a life that is suitable to users providing them with an improved quality of life. In a word, Architecture carries the responsibility of making a city more flexible and resilient. For this reason, IEREK has taken the responsibility of highlighting the role of architecture and urbanism in making our cities more resilient and sustainable. This is a summary of the scope of a series of international conferences on Resilient and Responsible Architecture and Urbanism RRAU held and organized by IEREK.
This conference is a great opportunity to carry on with the discussion and rather add to research undertaken in the topic. Many of the issues laid out are concerned with efficient resources and urban areas, zero energy buildings, resilient infrastructure, energy and environment, and resilient in human scale to finally form a resilient city. Services, maintenance, recycling, and water management are also topics that fit the scope/theme.
Together, we can lead the discussion to an effective and more useful outcome and reach goals set in the conference's first version held in partnership with Hanze University in Groningen, Netherlands; a city setting an example for resilience. This version is designated to be held in another city similarly characterized by high flexibility and resilience, Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia.
IEREK is pleased to invite scholars, researchers, students (undergraduate/postgraduate), organizations, municipalities and all stakeholders to contribute in this initative. Interested companies and individuals are also welcome to identify and exchange recent knowledge on the topic.
The publication of the conference proceedings will be through Springer in a book series titled Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation.
