In October 2013, the island of Bohol, Philippines was struck by both a 7.2-magnitude earthquake and Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) within a three-week span. Hundreds lost their lives, and over 300,000 Filipinos were displaced. In Bohol, 1,134 schools were destroyed, and even today 15,000 children remain in makeshift, temporary classrooms.
The Active School, by actLAB NYC and the ClassAct Foundation, addresses this crisis by providing transformative, low-cost schools that innovate local construction methods and suit the socio-cultural fabric of rural communities.
We have partnered with the Saint Vincent Institute in Maribojoc, Bohol to rebuild their school - however we still need your help to raise the funds necessary to put all 150 of their students back in safe, modern classrooms.
I ask that you join me in supporting actLAB and ClassAct on our Kickstarter page - any donation makes a difference, and can provide a child with the educational facilities they deserve!
Re: studio_Online Generation Redefines Mourning Gen Y-ers as the voluntarily dispossessed. The digital world is seemingly a formless one, interesting that it is associated with a sense of safety (naturally associated with anonymity, but what else?). If anything, I would argue…
Metal, concrete, acrylic, light
a study in form, repetitive relationships, material adjacency, lighting condition
metal treated to initiate corrosion, natural concrete staining resultant
a study in form, material balance and compositional weight
