Project Summary

Ivatan Agricultural Campus

A significant aspect of this entry from the Philippines is the effort to directly involve local stakeholders in the decision-making process of the development. Another merit of the proposal is the negotiations made with government officials to guarantee the quality of the collective concept of the residents.

Such an aim for social equity is praiseworthy. Also merited is the call for regionally sourced materials and recycling of material resources.
