Tacloban Study Centre
Tacloban City, Philippines
Built for a charity that facilitates education for street children from an informal settlement, the study center was used by 75 children between the ages of 5-18. It provided educational and social support for the children, providing meals before and after school, and spaces for study and recreation in a tranquil setting. Built through a collaborative process with the children and their parents, the building opened towards the sea, with study spaces that were breezy and had plenty of natural light; there was space for play outside. Even though the centre was destroyed by the typhoon in November 2013, it is being rebuilt through the same collaborative process.
