URBAN SCALE COMPETITION
AT NATIONAL UNIVERSITY
The annual DRIA international design competition encourages foresighted urban and architectural design proposals, as well as promotes innovation in building technologies to insure a specific community’s resiliency particularly prior to and during a disastrous event. A different community in Asia is picked every year as the competition’s test site through careful joint research efforts of this year’s organizer Department of Architecture, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in Taiwan, the initiator School of Design and Environment, National University of Singapore, and its network partners schools.
This proposal was the winning proposal for DRIA 2018 amongst a bunch of international entries of renovned architectural schools. It attempted to solve the flooding situation of Bangkok and made it resilient to such situations.
