Kayed Lakhia lecture, The Role of an Architect in Resilience , will be focused on Architects as policymakers have a few tools available to them to ensure the built environment is resilient to natural hazards. 1. they can advocate for the adoption and enforcement of the latest disaster-resistant building codes, 2. they can adopt sound land-use and floodplain management practices, 3. they can mitigate existing structures through elevations, acquisitions, and other risk reduction measures, 4. they can follow flood-maps by not building in floodways or floodplains, 5. lastly, they can encourage home and business owners to insure against disaster damages. All five tools offer some degree of resilience in the built environment. However, in an age of climate change with more extreme and frequent weather events, are these measures adequate? This lecture will explore options available to architects, practitioners, and policymakers to make our nation more resilient.
