The 14th edition of the International Forum on Urbanism conference, 25-27 November, is a reflection on and a stepping stone towards resilient urbanism. As many perspectives exist in this field, reflected in studies and practices by scholars, practitioners, policy makers, as well as the daily experiences of people, conflicts in interests and value systems also persist, which call for dialogues between dichotomies of discourses. Nowadays it might not be difficult to have a common definition of urbanism, which is concerned with understanding the spatial organization and dynamics of the built environment and with inventing new ways to maintain spatial quality and equality. However, the world is not yet on the same page about the meaning of resilient and sustainable urbanism, and the ways to approach it. The existing dichotomies of discourses need to be bridged as the challenges cities and regions face now and in the future are enormous, which are affected and determined by unexpected extreme events like the pandemic, economic crisis and climate change.

The spatial imaginaries offered by ecological urbanists working with Water Sensitive Urban De-sign (WSUD) can potentially foster more sustainable urban development by reclaiming space for water in the urban realm, developing new ecological infrastructure and transforming human relationships with water. However, the societal benefits purported by proponents of WSUD do...

The enablers and barriers underlying these human waste cy-cling communities are assessed by combining qualitative-quantitative data collection and multi-form analysis....

Chaos”, “organic”, “contested”, “messy” are terms evidently used to describe the nature of Indian cities, as 60-80 % are nearly “unplanned” and “self-constructed”. However, these expressions stand antithetical to modern urban spatial practices of planning and planned development which are embedded in regimes of formality and legality. Many of the...

Peri-urban landscapes present a growing challenge for urban planners. Vast territories that comprise high population densities, but few clear centralities, erode the epistemological integrity of popular planning models. Meanwhile, as in situ urban-industrial development and top-down planned infrastructures transform these intricate landscapes, both the conceptual and practical challenges augment. Here,...

The understanding of site specificity as a process-based approach is required to achieve sustainable landscapes, meaning that the final product is the intertwining of design processes, instead of arriving to a predetermined final form, it unfolds with the systems found in place, by the exploration of geographical, cultural and social...
