Resilient Urbanism

How can our cities adapt and evolve in the face of change? Can complexity theory help us provide our cities with more adaptive capacity to respond to uncertain circumstances?

Increasingly, we are becoming concerned with how we can make cities capable of responding to change and stress. Resilient urbanism takes guidance from some complexity principles with regards to how the urban fabric can adapt to change.


Urban resilience refers to the ability of an urban system-and all its constituent socio-ecological and socio-technical networks across temporal and spatial scales - to maintain or rapidly return to desired functions in the face of a disturbance, to adapt to change, and to quickly transform systems that limit current or future adaptive capacity (Meerow et al, 2015, Landscape and Urban Planning)

Resilience | Ecology

Considers resilience in urban and ecological systems, with resilience thought of not as a capacity to return to an earlier state after a disturbance, but instead the capacity to evolve or adapt to new conditions

The quantity and breadth of a system's adaptive potential is its 'requisite variety'.

In order for a complex system to adapt, it needs to contain agents that have the capacity to behave in different ways - to enact adaptation you need adaptable things. Learn more →

Once a Complex System has 'settled in' to a fit regime (or basin of attraction), it is very difficult for it to be 'shaken' from this state. A system perturbation acts as a kind of 'shock' that, if large enough, is able to move a system out of its attractor state and potentially into a new regime.

The idea that systems can have more than one stable state.

Early versions of systems theory assumed that systems could be 'optimized' to a single condition. CAS analysis assumes that more than one system state can satisfy optimizing criteria, and so the system is able to gravitate to multiple equilibria.
