Shock (not) Horror; mediating radical transformations in infrastructure provision
A new EPSRC two-year research project, which brings together academics in civil engineering (Newcastle University), sustainable design (Open University) and development and planning (UCL) in a bid to imagine the infrastructure of the next century, was launched in October 2011. The thesis of the project is that ‘shocks’ (such as economic crisis, floodings, terrorist attacks) open-up learning opportunities to rethink the operation of infrastructure and devise more resilient and adaptable infrastructure systems. The project’s methodology will build on an on-going dialogue between the academic and industry partners, which also include Arup, Network Rail, National Grid and IBM among others through a series of interviews, workshops and experiments.
