CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK DIAGRAM

The design approach chosen to be applied in the proposed BSU


employee housing basically tackles three areas: the geography, culture and
institution of La Trinidad. Considering these three from the start will give a
glimpse of how the community evolved overtime thus making any designer
aware of the issues that hinders and aids a societys growth. By understanding
how these issues are related to one another, it helps the researcher create a
housing proposal that is resilient to both natural and man-made disasters. These
could be achieved by aiding their chances of survival through deliberate
spatial manipulation while guiding them to safety to counter any impending
disaster and reduce casualties.
