Pamphlet Architecture 32: Resilience
By James A. Craig and Matt Ozga-Lawn
The competition for Pamphlet Architecture 32 centered on the theme of resilience. By addressing the capacity to cope, the ability to bounce back, and the mitigation and management of risk, participants were asked to showcase a fresh understanding of the architectural opportunities found in resilience. The winning entry successfully takes on the topic through an investigation of the ravaged city of Warsaw, Poland. By identifying, interrogating, and ultimately reinforcing both the physical and immaterial conditions of the landscape, the project allows the space to become something new and yet hold on to what it is, truly exhibiting resilience.
