BUILDING LOCAL RESILIENCE (USFD/BLR) is a research platform at the School of Architecture at the University of Sheffield which supports connections between research, teaching, practice and outreach in the area of socially engaged research, new forms of praxis and design, digital methodologies and building.  BLR is focusing on the role of design in developing resilience on a neighborhood scale and is uniquely positioned to both understand the conditions and develop collaborative responses to the complexity of the challenges ahead. The research focuses on how design and architecture, along with associated social, cultural and economic processes and structures, might be transformed to build neighbourhood capacities to adapt to these changes.
