ArcDR3 Forum Vol.1: New Agendas for Regenerative Urbanism"

ArcDR3 Forum Vol.1: New Agendas for Regenerative Urbanism" event on June 26 2020
ArcDR3 (Architecture and Urban Design for Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience) is a global initiative established by xLAB at UCLA Architecture and Urban Design, in partnership with IRIDeS at Tohoku University in Japan, and Miraikan - The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Japan, as a part of the APRU Multi-Hazards Program. 11 major universities from regions with recurring risks of natural disasters have also been invited 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. 
ArcDR3 Forum Vol.1: New Agendas for Regenerative Urbanism
"ArcDR3 Forum Vol.1: New Agendas for Regenerative Urbanism" will be held on Friday, June 26, and is the first event in the series of research, symposia, and exhibitions planned by the ArcDR3 initiative.

Under the umbrella of the "Grand Syllabus," the 11 participating universities will present their syllabi for their context-specific design studios in the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year.
Discussions will be divided into three panels: #1: Earth, Wind and Fire, #2: Water, and #3: Multi-hazard.
•To address the projected theme of "Regenerative Urbanism" and its implications for the design studios at each of the participating universities. 
•To recognize the changes in learning environments and teaching processes that have been redefined by the global crisis, and explore opportunities for participants to expand their research skills by collaborating on a global scale through the ArcDR3 network. 
Participating Universities include UCLA (USA), UC Berkeley (USA), University of Tokyo (Japan), Tsinghua University (China), The University of Washington (USA), University of Melbourne (Australia), National University of Singapore (Singapore), University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong), Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (Chile), National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan) and Tohoku University (Japan)
Culminating studio projects will be discussed in upcoming conferences, displayed in exhibitions, and compiled into a publication for public distribution.
