About the ArcDR3 Initiative:
ArcDR³ (Architecture and Urban Design for Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience) is a global initiative that has invited 11 major universities from regions with recurring risks of natural disasters to participate by engaging in a collaborative research studio that pursues new strategies for risk-resilient environments across the Pacific Rim. By establishing an international platform for the production and exchange of knowledge on environmental design that reduces the risk of recurring disasters and enhances resilience, ArcDR3 aims to create a more effective integration of theory/research and practice/design.
