“GRAD STUDENTS RECEIVE HONORABLE MENTION”
GRAD students received an honorable mention in DRIA (Design Resilience in Asia) design competition which was open to the partner universities from around the world. DRIA is a network initiated by the National University of Singapore (NUS) and 13 top urban related programs in universities around the world. KMUTT was invited by DRIA to be part of the network and join the competition represented by the following SoA+D students: Job Barallas, Chadatan Petwichit, and Thanayuth Unprasert (Master Degree in Design and Planning Program), under the supervision of Dr. Kanjanee Buddhimedhee (Lecturer in Urban Management, Design Planning) and co-advised by Ajarn Waraluk Pansuwan and Ajarn Bettiza Escueta.
The annual DRIA international design competition encourages foresighted urban and architectural design proposals, and 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 partner schools. The competition was held on July 1-6, 2019.
