Resilient Environments

We design environments with foresight that are able to prevent and recover from difficulties, are respectful of land use, and are economically viable.

In the project Landscape of Differences resilience strategy is addressed on a regional scale. The concept propose a transformation of ecosystems, landscapes, urban areas, energy, and mobility systems in response to climate change, aiming for a sustainable, secure, and adaptable future for the region's residents and biodiversity.

We all have experienced directly or indirectly how disasters, like a health crisis or a typhoon, impact our lives. Good urban design can reduce this impact: our designs reduce disaster risk and mitigate climate change effects.

We believe integrated policies and adaptive urbanism allow us to live together with nature as well as to address droughts, flooding, and urban heat.

How can we design processes and spaces to address these challenges in a sustainable way?

At TSPA we develop resilient urban forms that lead to dense, better-connected cities, with integrated green-blue networks, and a reduced CO2 footprint. We think urban form together with circular economies and societies, for example by using recycled and reusable materials, and keeping processes local. Together, this results in climate-responsive sustainable urban development.
