To understand how architecture and urbanism can operate with a soft resilience, it is useful to begin by framing architecture as oscillating between ecological poles.

The definition of ecology is both an organism’s relationship to other organisms the ‘human ecology’ (i.e. our political, economic and social spheres); as well as an organism’s relationship to its environment the ‘natural ecology’, including the design of landscape, infrastructures, urban form, as well as the impact of environmental conditions such as geology, weather and ecosystems, to name a few.
