The word 'resilience' is becoming widespread even among the general public. At Architecture for Humanity, we have discussed our version of the definition of resilience. We are (re)building affected communities that suffered from natural disasters and chronic social issues to have a better, stronger, more socially and environmentally sustainable future. It is not just about returning them to their previous state. We always think about our next challenges, and try to prepare for them.
