Internationally adopted in 2015, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction aims to achieve in 2030 “the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries” (UNISDR, 2015). 

In the spirit of this framework, we invite professionals and students in the fields of architecture, urban design, urban planning, landscape architecture, engineering, design and everyone interested in the mission of the 8th International Conference on Building Resilience to submit their projects and ideas to the Building 4Humanity Resilient Design Competition.

The competition is organized by the NGO Building 4Humanity and supported by the 8th ICBR (Lisbon ’2018). Teams composed of students or professionals from private practices, public entities and/or NGOs are welcome. Each design team should be composed of no less than three and no more than six participants, while interdisciplinary teams are highly encouraged. 

The competition is open to two types of teams:

  • Professional teams, comprising at least one qualified architect. 

  • Student teams, including one professor (as supervisor) with a practical background in architecture and two to five students.

Design teams may submit more than one project, but each entry must be registered and submitted separately, under a specific ID number.
