Building Community Resilience

Originally a student-led initiative for recovery and resilience in the Tri-State area after Superstorm Sandy in 2012, Operation Resilient Living and Innovation Plus (ORLI+) has leveraged continuing collaboration with industry and community partners, into the formation of a burgeoning resilience consultancy. Its co-founders will discuss the development of a flexible model of resilient architecture and development, based on research, engagement, empowerment, and design. Through discussion of recent workshops, and planned interventions in Houston and Puerto Rico, they will present their vision for a more impactful design practice, which fosters resilience in communities through innovative approaches to engagement, and re-imagines the role of design in the resiliency discussion.
