Key ideas: Connectivity; flexibility, Local and Livelihood
“Resilience is based on the shifting relationship between scales, and between autonomy on the one hand and connectivity on the other.”
Design strategy is designed by focusing on lowering down impact rather than resisting hazards at different scale. Bridging settlement physically as well as socially. The expanding water is utilized as alarming feature for the settlement which set ups guidelines for design solutions. So one has to live with flood water by allowance, acceptance and adaptation to the cycle of hazards. Life is seen as core amongst all hazards where life includes the basic livelihoods security, hygiene, energy and income must be stabilized. Small scale interventions which are short term action and it will have long term impacts. All scale intervention is emphasized to built argument and importance of locality. Hence, scheme is compartmentalized to be built incrementally. Settlement demands for incremental growth which has to be flexible and feasible with all aspects of community’s compliance. Community are made aware to their own sources along with instinct of designer. Community is made self-sustainable. Resilience is not only being flexible in hazards but it is also about how efficiently a community can function in daily life. Resilience is seen as cycles transiting from phase of normal life as well as hazards. During the hazards; proposed scheme facilitates the community with alternatives of rescue routes at different scales when water level rises gradually.
