About HILLSIDE DWELLERS
Located in the Northern Luzon Philippines, Hillside Dwellers is a project scope that tackles issues such as food security in the Ifugao, Agribusiness, Community construction in Baguio, and cross collaboration of innovation. These issues are translated into an Architectural project located onto two different sites, aided by the collaboration of the Katutubong project to help bring awareness to the indigenous cultures within the Philippines. The overall Project aims to help engage local youth and community to contribute towards international issues while answering local realities in a cross cultural exchange. Through the participation of workshops aimed to expose the process of design and innovation we aim to encourage youth and local community to “think locally and act globally” in retrospect our objectives are to empower both ends of this cross cultural exchange to feel empowered by answering three Architectural questions.
What can Architecture do to empower local youth and community to engage in humanitarian issues overseas and encourage positive change locally?
What can Architecture do to empower indigenous development?
What can Architecture do, to create sustainable opportunity for both local and international partnerships?
