dc.description.abstractWhen Typhoon Haiyan struck portions of Southeast Asia in November 2013, it left the Philippines particularly devastated. One of the heavily damaged cities was Tacloban. The super typhoon rendered many dead, homeless and deprived of their livelihoods. The coastal fisherfolks are one such community that had to deal with the direct blow, in addition to their pre-disaster already-struggling livelihoods. Through the years, the worsening effects of climate change further places a toll on the city and country’s vulnerability to natural disasters such as strong storms, deadly typhoons, rising sea levels and aggravated flooding. These results of climate change have proven to threaten the livelihoods of the coastal fisherfolks of Tacloban greatly. The thesis proposes to offer a second life to the fishing industry of Tacloban and will refresh its version after each disaster befalls. The fisherfolks and their community will be able to execute their fishing operations beyond pure coastal fishing. Hence, enabling the community to achieve growth exponentially within the local fishing industry without being overly dependent on coastal fishing. Located along the coastline of Tacloban City’s Barangay 38 (formerly the old bus terminal), this facility includes a fish market, a fish auction area, eateries, a tuna cannery and its auxiliary facilities, alongside community areas for the fishing community. These programs provide for the post-fishing processes, economic and community life, which will help enable self-empowerment and resilience of the fishing community. Apart from operating as a post-fishing facility, the architecture activates as an emergency evacuation centre for the community in times of the next disaster.
