The theme for 2012 was Resilient design, and in the wake of Superstorm Sandy it seems that our choice was prescient. We presented a series of posts including:

Building Green Is No Longer Enough, It is Time To Build Resilient
How To Build a Resilient Design: Make it Smaller, Higher, Stronger and Warmer
Making The Case For Resilient Design
culminating just before Sandy in The Weather Reminds Us That It's Time To Get Serious About Resilient Design

It is a theme that will continue, but it is not without its dangers and mis-steps.
