Resilience Untangled: Challenges and Opportunities in Latin America and the Caribbean
Given that resilience has emerged globally as a guiding principle for development, understanding the implications of its transformative capacity becomes imperative. Engaging critically with the concept of resilience calls for the acknowledgment of its several forms, both positive and negative, across urban systems and depending on its interpretation and scope.
This conference is the first collaborative event organized by Latin organizations of architecture and planning students at UPenn, Harvard, Columbia, and MIT.
