FUTUREPROOF Resilience and Climate Action


The programme Futureproof aims to explore ways in which architecture can help create a more resilient and sustainable future. Any effective response to climate change needs to be able to reduce demand for diminishing resources and to respond flexibly to the changing environment. An integrated design solution that both mitigates and adapts to climate change is most effective.

Further, designers need to consider the scale of the individual, the city, nation and globe in their work to imagine more resilient solutions in the face of the range of challenges brought on by climate change, which include weather-related events such as droughts and floods, health-related events such as Covid-19, economic side effects such as rising food prices, and societal conditions like mass migrations.
