Sustainability ∩ Resilience Integration II: Metrics

June 13, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Metrics of Resilience and the RELi Rating System
Sustainability and resilience are two sides of the same coin. When combined with regeneration, civility, and health, they create an emergent property that can be thought of as a ‘living system.’ In this presentation, architect and eco-entrepreneur Doug Pierce of Perkins+Will simultaneously explores the theory and practice of resilience through a holistic lens grounded in biomimicry and the reductive perspective of checklists. He will offer clarity on how sustainability and resilience overlap, and where they differ.

This transdisciplinary presentation will blend design, science, and engineering with actionable metrics from the RELi Resilience Action List and rating system that are readily available to design practitioners, decision-makers, and policy experts. RELi was launched in 2014 and was adopted by the USGBC at Greenbuild 2017.
