Resilient Design Symposium
Thursday February, 22 & Friday February, 23
Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23, 2018
Cal Poly University Berg Gallery, Bldg 05, Room 105
Resilient design and resiliency directed design is becoming part of local, regional and global professional practice. While definitions are still emerging, a working statement by the Resilient Design Institute provides a starting point by stating that “it is the intentional design of buildings, landscapes, communities, and regions in order to respond to natural and manmade disasters and disturbances—as well as long-term changes resulting from climate change…” We seek to improve on this statement through understanding by examining state of the art practice and its outcomes.
Resilient Design: State of the Art & Emerging Issues will bring together leading professionals involved in the design, and making of buildings, landscapes places to present their resiliency work, to think about the future and to debate the most pressing issues. Professionals from leading firms such as AECOM, Perkins+Will, ARUP, SWA, Waggonner & Ball, Bay Area Resilient Design Challenge, and the Cuningham Group have already committed to participate. This is an exciting and confusing time as all of us try to understand the ways in which resiliency operates and also how it serves the professions and more importantly: society.

Cal Poly Landscape Architecture Department rankings in the 2018 DesignIntelligence Survey
The 2018 DesignIntelligence Survey results are out this week. Once again, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo received extraordinarily high rankings for its Bachelor Landscape Architecture program! "We have an extensive and strong five-year curriculum as well as a highly qualified faculty with diverse expertise in all aspects of the profession," says Department Chair Professor Omar Faruque, "and it is no surprise that our program is ranked so high."
According to the survey of deans, chairs and other leaders at schools with landscape architecture programs, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo is the #1 most admired undergraduate landscape architecture program in the nation! Here is what they are saying about our five-year BLA program: "Well-rounded program with comprehensive focus on technical skills and theory."
According to the survey of hiring professionals who identified the undergraduate schools that are best preparing students for a future in the profession, we rank # 4 overall.
Also, in eight subcategories, we are in the top five programs (among the graduate and undergraduate programs combined) of the nation.
