DAtE Competition

Design Against the Elements is a global architecture and urban planning competition to design a new disaster-relief community. Inspired by recent climatic catstophes, specifically tropical storm Ondoy (Ketsana) in the Philippines. The design will include disaster-resistant housing and community facilities which concentrate on the triple-bottom line to create a more equitable future. The winning entry will get built as a prototype eco-village in Minila. Sounds like an interesting competition…registrations close September 24.
