The SHOCK (NOT) HORROR project:
uniquely unpicks the potential for radical change through the allegory of medical trauma to challenge infrastructure stakeholders to move out of their comfort zone,
challenge the current organization of infrastructure in silos,
rethink the nature of shocks
devise new and transformative ways of thinking about infrastructure.
Specifically it will develop a new concept of infrastructure resilience, both by using shocks as a way of both highlighting the interdependencies of existing infrastructure systems (identifying the weak points), and improving infrastructure by restoring it to a better state after the shock (rather than re-instating what was there before the shock).
