the Strong Towns mission is to promote a model of development that allows America's towns and cities to become antifragile.

"Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better." -Nassim Taleb

The concept of antifragility is inspired, in large part, by Nassim Taleb's book, Antifragile. We explore this concept in the context of Strong Towns often.


At Strong Towns, we're currently exploring the book, Antifragile, through an interactive, online book club. Over the course of the summer, we'll share a series of articles that reflect on this book in the context of building Strong Towns.

If you're a member of Strong Towns, you can also join us in online conversations through a private Slack discussion channel. Sign up on this page. If you're not a member, become one today and we'll send you an invite to the Slack discussion.
