    Based on my Inaugural Professorial Lecture, Facilitating Resilient Places: Planning as a Creative Discipline, given on 4 October 2012 at the University of Ulster’s Jordanstown campus, this paper takes a Geddesian lens to reflect on contemporary metaphorical concepts which advocate interdisciplinarity. Drawing together ideas relating to dynamic b/ordering, resilience, innovation zones and boundary spanning, a case is made for spatial planners to assume the mantle of the new reticulist.
