Enabling the citys ability to deal with the stresses associated with population growth – demands on food, water, space and energy also taking into account for sustainable growth and preparing it for a long-term surge in urbanization. Resiliency is considered a system’s capacity to survive, adapt and grow in the face of unforeseen physical, social and economic challenges. As urban populations grow, it becomes increasingly important that cities of the future are equipped to deal with stresses, such as space scarcity and inclusive & vertical urban planning, food and water shortages, energy demands, inefficient public transportation systems and natural disasters. The long term perspective of a robust built environment is an inevitable endeavor.

Tracks:

Design-Design track will emphasize on the progressive and corrective; spatial and intermittent design challenges of the city. Architects are capitalizing on urbanization trends to get people moving. Cities are growing denser, forcing them to build up, smart and satellite belts.
Build – Technology in terms of building amazing and inclusive structure for the urban populace to tracking the issues such as structural stability, green materials and methods.
Sustain – Buildings are harbor of energy and bad emitters too. Resiliency must also be a priority for creating sustainable growth, and energy efficiency plays a key role in the resiliency equation. With this in mind, more attention to energy efficiency and resiliency has to be given when discussing how cities will meet ongoing urbanization and climate-related challenges.
