Colorful Architecture Helps Locals Adapt to Climate Change
RE-AINBOW is a community center in Vietnam that locals can use as a safety center during heavy weather
The Duc Tho district of Ha Tinh province in Vietnam has endured more than its share of the destructively changing climate, and is the center of a community building effort to combat it anyway possible. RE-AINBOW aims to provide immediate shelter for locals caught in storms while simultaneously sponsoring productive dialogue about the problem.
Due low incomes leading to weak construction and being located near a path for heavy storms, the citizens of Duc Tho have spent the past decade rebuilding structures they know could disappear the next day. RE-AINBOW has entered the community to serve as a permanent, storm-proof structure with both static and dynamic qualities.
