Reclaiming a little bit of Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
Is a partial reclamation of Manila Bay a bad idea? Will it worsen the yearly floods and the high tides from the sea that bring floods to Manila? Not according to architect and urban planner Felino "Jun" Palafox Jr. In fact, according to Palafox, this reclamation project might even help free Manila from its perennial floodings. Palafox is one Filipino architect who was made a name for himself in other countries in Asia and elsewhere. He has, for instance, pioneered in putting up green buildings in Singapore and reclamation projects in many countries.
