In the heart of Vol 9 No 1 of EMARA Journal lies a diverse tapestry of architectural exploration, each article weaving its own compelling narrative of innovation and resilience as well as urban issues.

In the aftermath of catastrophic landslides, rebuilding goes beyond only repairing damaged structures; it also involves strengthening community resilience and rethinking how local construction is done. This urgent matter is explored by Zakiah Hidayati and Mafazah Noviana, who provide insight into the difficulties and approaches to restoring areas affected by landslides. At the same time, Antariksa Antariksa and Rahima Dheta Yaistrina look at the Amben Tengah traditional architectural orientation in Javanese homes, providing information on how indigenous building approaches can make a building more resilient. Looking ahead, Kemala Jeumpa, Rumilla Harahap, and Yudhistira Anggraini investigate how green construction features might be included into communal housing structures and promote sustainable behaviors to lessen the likelihood of future disasters. The research on sustainable lighting in schools conducted by Rr. Nurindah Wiji Sejati and Ova Candra Dewi exemplifies the practical application of energy efficiency in building design, which contributes to environmental sustainability and resilience. In addition, the authors Ahmad Saifudin Mutaqi, Purnama Salura, and Reginaldo Christophori Lake highlight the significance of equitable recovery and long-term resilience planning by addressing the critical issue of affordable housing for disadvantaged groups in metropolitan Indonesia.  Arfiani Syariah, Muhamad Ratodi, and Septia Heryanti explore policy options for redeveloping urban slums in Banjarmasin, highlighting the need for individualized interventions to strengthen communities in precarious situations. Finally, the work of Kusnul Prianto, Muchamad Helmi Umam, Rita Ernawati, Muhammad Ulinuha, and Ayu Kanaya Rosidi—Community-Based Research on Urban Farming: Towards Sustainable Development and Inclusive Urban Design in Masangan Kulon Village, Indonesia—enhances this discussion by drawing attention to the critical importance of sustainable agriculture and inclusive urban planning in creating resilient communities.

As each article unfolds, Vol 9 No 1 of EMARA Journal becomes a testament to the boundless creativity and resilience ingrained within the realm of architect
Happy reading
