Abstract

The complexity of repeated changes in natural environment and their impact on the dynamic urban built environment setting, whether it is the primary physical impact by means of ingress of water to normally dry areas or evacuation from the forces of high velocity flood water, are challenging. There is constant change in level of exposure and vulnerability of surrounding built environment as a result of the memory stored within the system partly due to repeated impacts of flood events. Enhancement of resilience within the built environment against such irregular changes demands consideration of the interactions and feedbacks within built environment on a scenario specific basis reflecting antecedent memory within the system. It however still remains a challenge to direct the attributes of physical memory within built environment and utilise it for maintaining functionality in the system through enhancing resilience. This research adopts a literature review approach to identify those interconnected links which feeds back into the system and propose a framework which will help in identifying the potential vulnerability of the system in developing resilience with special reference to flood induced physical memory.
