Abstract

The large-scale deployment and maintenance of infrastructure is time consuming and expensive. Over time, with changing demands and threats, these artifacts need replacement, upgrades or removal. Designing these objects assuming a fixed life or for perpetuity, neglects the reality of mutability of our built environment and variations in natural systems (Milly 2008). Consequently, in locations where there is a great degree of uncertainty, it may be worthwhile to consider modular structures and systems.
