View Shelters


Abaniko
Designed by Michael Ian Ybanez

From: Las Pinas, Philippines
Shelter location: Philippines
Date accepted: August 31, 2009

The shelter's form is based on a bended abaniko fan, a product originated in the Philippines. The designer's intention was to create a design for a shelter that is in way - undeniably Filipino, and would incorporate locally available materials such as bamboo and abaniko in a very unusual manner. The shelter is in Victorias, a town in Negros Occidental, commonly known for its vast agricultural lands such as sugar cane plantation. The designer has also taken into account that the shelter could also be built/adapt in different areas in the country.
