L'associazione Architecture for Humanity Vancouver Chapter organizza un concorso internazionale di architettura per selezionare soluzioni innovative che permettano di attenuare le catastrofi naturali come terremoti e tsunami.

"NEXT BIG ONE" is the 2014 disaster resiliency project organized by the Architecture for Humanity Vancouver Chapter. "NEXT BIG ONE" raises awareness on the high-magnitude earthquake and tsunami event - The "Next Big One" - that plagues cities around the world. We are calling upon the design community to offer fresh perspectives and innovative ideas in rethinking how to design for disasters.

The objective of this single-stage open-ideas competition is to propose an innovative design solution that can mitigate natural disasters while simultaneously providing community permanence; rather than a disaster response or recovery plan.
