The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in early 2020 has dramatically changed how people live and work. With most people experiencing months of living and working from home under the sudden risk, the home has become a vital fortress against the outbreak. Taking the post-pandemic era as a backdrop, the author thinks about how better to play the role of housing shelter in the future and puts forward the form of residential architecture in Beijing in the future -- resilient housing. Starting from the connotation of resilient housing and its relationship with the resilient city, we analyze the reasons for the emergence of resilient housing. Then, the specific operation mode of resilient housing is discussed, and a student's concept competition scheme is taken as an example to analyze the specific risk-coping mode of resilient housing. It aims to put forward operational strategies for the development of residential buildings in Beijing in 2050 so that people can live better.
