COMMUNITY

How might we strengthen community identity and cohesion?

One feature of a resilient urban environment is the ability of various communities to maintain their identity in the face of daily pressures and extreme events. People come to urban areas for many different reasons and from many different places. They may have distinct cultures, aspirations and habits. But, resilience is a collective effort, with communities at its center.

How might we design spaces, events and programs that build on existing norms and community activities and help create enduring identities?
