Mat-Ter Collaborative

On November 9, 2013 the devastating Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, causing more then 5000 deaths and destroying the homes and cities of millions. Natural disasters due to climate change have become extremely commonplace all over the world. We can’t do much to stop them, but as architects we can help a design concept for a typhoon-resilient school to be implemented in the affected area of the Philippines, where sadly over 3,000 schools have been badly damaged by Hiyan’s powerful force.
