Abstract: The thesis project is a collaboration with an Non- Governmental Organistation (NGO), Gawad Kalinga (GK) in Philippines, Manila to help research and provide viable design solution to their current food security problem in their communities. The thesis objective aims to create a 100% Food Self Sufficient Village in a urbanised environment to ensure food security within the GK community. After various studies of the issues and site , it was decided that Bagong Silang, Manila will be the proposed site. It has the highest population and slum density in addition to high unemployment rate. A self sufficient village will create a huge impact in such a environment. The design is based on the principle of ‘Waste for one, resource for another’. It employes a integrated closed loop resource management strategy which fully utilised or recycles food, water and waste. The masterplan was designed to fully utilised the existing pond and creek to create an aqua culture fish farm and fertilized water storage for crop irrigation. The units are designed into several clusters to embed a sense of belonging. The masterplan are orientated and design to generate maximium surface area, create multi layered farming and also increases the ability to better capture sunlight for the harvesting of various crops with differing sunlight requirement i.e Creeper crops, Leafy crops and root crops..
