JOURNAL of DESIGN for RESILIENCE in ARCHITECTURE and PLANNING (DRArch) is interested in designs and design methods the approach of foreseeing the future, long-term, sustainable, being able to synthesize technological developments with inspiration and aesthetics. Resilience means the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties with the ability of adaptation. Resilient design and resilient city are deal with better living. DRArch is not only on the concept of resilience design mentioned in the literature, but also on the anticipation of future designs in the rapidly changing and transforming modern world. Design for resilience is to adapt to change, to develop innovative tools, to use technology for people and the environment, dealing with flexibility, durability, mobility and humanity. DRArch provides a new forum to bring together existing design accumulation with futuristic approach to create better and happier built environment. DRArch aims to fill that gap. DRArch is a free, open access, scholarly international, e-journal considers original research articles, viewpoints, book reviews in peer-reviewed.
