Building Resilient Cities
Internationally renowned Dutch architect Matthijs Bouw discusses the increased attention to urban resilience—“the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems within a city to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience.”
Bouw is the founder of One Architecture & Urbanism (ONE), an award-winning design and planning firm with offices in Amsterdam and New York. His Library presentation is co-presented by the Kansas City Design Center and the City Manager’s Office of Kansas City. The reception is made possible by Burns & McDonnell, Confluence, Vireo, and Phronesis.
