Building Resilience to Typhoons

Advisor: N. Claire Napawan
The Philippines is a tropical archipelago in Southeast Asia that is vulnerable to natural disasters, especially typhoons. The imminent effects of climate change are predicted to intensify these powerful storms and negatively impact vulnerable populations. This research project responds to these circumstances through the design and conceptual development of a network of disaster response base camps for displaced populations in Los Baños, Philippines.
