Applying the concept of resilience - of metallurgical origin - to architecture is no longer new following the essay Toward Resilient Architecture by Mehaffy and Salìgaros. However, as often happens with terms that take on an exotic character, there is an abuse of the metaphor they underlie. Likewise, the concept of participation and the practices that it would imply in designing has been and still is used and abused. Today, architecture should perhaps resist the rhetorical representations of certain concepts that claim to update it. Architecture, however, if the end is clear, has no need to represent itself with metaphors that justify its existence. The direct experience of two works on the borderlines between planning and participation wants to prove that participatory resilience architecture is not yet another rhetorical figure but one of the many answers that it can still give to the society of the "endless means" described by Agamben.
