Maintaining the function of the systems and recovering from shocks or chronic stresses is what, nowadays, refers to Urban Resilience. Resilience is a term derived from the Latin verb resilire, which means bounce. It was used as a synonym of resistance in different contexts such as medical, psychological, among others. However, since the 1980s, the concept of resilience was mostly associated with the ecological field and referred to as the capability of dealing with catastrophes (Fooken 2016: 13ff; Voss & Dittmer 2016: 179ff; Wink 2016: 1ff). Currently, it is a topic frequently discussed worldwide due to the Anthropocene, which is aggravating climate change at an accelerated pace. In this context, the term is used to emphasize the constant symbiosis between humans and nature (Prominski 2014: 6ff). The approach of this paper tackles flood risks in a specific neighborhood in the city of Hannover. For that matter, historic events and actions implemented by the municipality, as well as the study of data provided, will be mentioned in this document. After going through a research and discussion phase, the intention is to develop guidelines and propose design strategies to address flood threats at the study case site.
