Design Against the Elements: Philippines Disaster Relief Housing

As part of the Design Against the Elements competition, the prompt is to design an entire disaster-resistant community next to an existing university. The project scope includes a community center, a community daycare or school, and at least 100 housing units.

The underlying goal is to create survivable units. In the case of a typhoon, these houses are raised 3 ft so that it can endure the floods that follow.
