dc.description.abstractIn recent years Urban Resilience has taken great relevance both in the academic field and urban governance and management. However, uncertainties and fuzziness hinder its implementation to urban planning realm, in general, and urban regeneration policies, particularly. In addition, most attempts favoring Urban Resilience embrace a Bouncing-Back (Engineering-Resilience) top-down conception of the term. As a counterpoint, the paper claims for the socio-ecological (bouncing-forward) bottom-up resilience approach as the ability of systems to continuously progress and adapt. The paper bases on the socio-cultural community-led case study of CanFugarolas, in Mataró (Barcelona), for the recovery of a derelict industrial building, as a major contribution, given the lack of attention to resilience emerging from grassroots, community-led efforts. Regarding urban regeneration and the difficulties (stagnation) observed at the infrastructural and regulatory subsystems (status quo), the social subsystem stands as the guardian and promoter of urban resilience. Both because of its capacity for self-organized internal functioning and because of social-centered cross-scale interactions that enable the progression of the former. Thus, under the heuristics of the Adaptive Cycle and the Panarchy model, the paper analyses the cycle transitioning at each urban subsystem as well as interactions between them. As a result, insurmountable obstacles (traps) at the built stock and urban planning are revealed, contrasting to the ability of the community to navigate all stages, and overcoming successive ailments. Further, inner and cross-scale social-driven (social-centered Panarchy) interactions at the urban system are traced. Hence, the social is revealed both as “urban sink” and “urban trigger” where the community, in the form of actor-network, becomes the catalyzer (through Remember and Revolt mechanisms) for transformative regeneration dynamics, and hence for urban resilience, also at the city scale.
