Description
The programme of the competition is open, covering design for resilience in any stage of the disaster risk management cycle – that is, focusing on either mitigation (“building better from the start”) or recovery (“building back better”). Each team should present its own preliminary programme in the act of registration. Applicants must identify and choose a disaster-prone area and showcase ideas of how resilient houses and settlements can support the building of communities’ resilience. Alternatively, submissions may refer to already built resilient houses.
As a mere suggestion, different baseline scenarios in any part of the world could be thought of, such as: A wildfire risk-prone low-density or rural area, A flood-prone area, A tsunami-prone area, An earthquake-prone area, A drought-prone area, A hurricane-prone area, A landslide-prone area, A refugee camp, Multifamily houses hosting refugees, concentrated in consolidated urban areas, A densely built informal area prone to multi-hazard disaster risks

Categories:
Category 1: Best Resilient Building Project (built; focusing on any hazard type)
Category 2: Best Resilient Building and/or Settlement Project (unbuilt; focusing on any hazard type)
Category 3: Best Resilient Building and/or Settlement Student Project (unbuilt; focusing on any type of hazard)

The jury will be composed of more than 40 experienced practitioners and scholars from all over the world.
