DAtE ~ Illac Diaz's Design Against the Elements

MIT alum Illac Diaz's efforts to DAtE -- Design Against the Elements -- results from years of thinking and action about addressing the challenges faced by everyday people in the Philippines, and is a global architectural design competition seeking solutions to the problems from climate change...
"...The Philippines is one of the 10 most at risk in the world for losses of life and property because of its large citizenry who are most vulnerable and least able to adapt to the wide scale challenges brought by increasing drought and flooding. This is why green may be an option for the developed world, but is growing as a necessity for those in the developing nations."
