‘Designing Long Life Cities’ featured in CUBES Magazine Issue 94. This article serves as an introduction to the upcoming book Designing Resilience in Asia: Designing with the Unpredictable, Planning with Uncertainty. This article discusses ‘Seven Responses’ to make cities more resilient towards climate change. These responses aim to address urban resilience through design, planning, technology, management, policies or community involvement. They aim to contribute to the debate on how to create solutions to anticipate, prevent and adapt to the current climate-change events and, more specifically, how to return environmental qualities to our cities so that we contribute to reducing the impact of climate change through carbon-neutral or carbon net-positive proposals.
