The Designing Resilience in Asia (DRIA) is an International Research Programme on urban and architecture resilience launched in 2014. The DRIA is a flagship initiative of the School of Design and Environment of the National University of Singapore that aims to promote and foster a substantive research and discussion about innovative ideas and propositions towards the resiliency of Asian cities responding to the environmental effects caused by climate change.
The 2017 DRIA International Open Competition encourages participants to propose innovative WATER MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS at the urban planning, urban design, architecture, landscape, building technology or the industrial design scales to overcome the challenge of 'DROUGHTS & WATER SCARCITY' in our cities, neighborhoods and communities. There are no restrictions in regards to country, site, neighborhood, program, or size. Projects can focus on any city in the world, on a specific urban location or can be a general concept or design without a specific site. Submitted proposals should be original and cannot have been awarded or published previously. Creative and innovative water management solutions dealing with "excess of water" as an opportunity to solve the water scarcity problem are welcome.
The speculative proposals will engage with design and technology that connect the physical and the social aspects of a community to promote its resiliency in response to water scarcity and/or droughts as some of the effects of climate change.
