Australians have a long affiliation with the inter-face between the urban environement and nature. As the effects of climate change increase the intensity and ferocity of extreme weather events, periods of immense pressure will be put on the built environment. History shows that those buildings in remote and peripheral areas, such as those at the urban/rural interface will be most affected.
The architectural profession has been active in moving towards a sustainable model of housing, however some environmental advocates suggest that if we are to srvive the increasingly disastrous effects of global warming we have to look beyond sustainable towards more resilient physical and social structures.
