Why make Calgary Resilient?

    Resilience helps us to sustain unexpected change. This means designing buildings and communities that can flexibly respond to dramatic shifts in social, physical, economic, and ecological systems. Resilience ranges from ensuring livable conditions during severe weather events to reducing our overall environmental footprint. By pioneering the use of agile architecture and planning design strategies, EVDS researchers are helping to make Calgary more adaptable to both short term dramatic events and long term systemic change.
