MANILA – Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD) and the global infrastructure firm AECOM are presenting the results of their research on urban development in Manila through an exhibit.

Held at the San Ignacio Church and Mission House in Intramuros, “Manila: Future Habitations” examines four areas in the Metro: the Port of Manila, Intramuros, Baseco Compound, and the Pasig Riverfront. 

It highlights new opportunities for enhancing liveability in Manila, introducing new models for residential and public spaces. 

“Manila: Future Habitations” is part of a three-year collaboration between AECOM and Harvard GSD to study and provide proposals on urban development in emerging Southeast Asian cities.

Below are some photos from the exhibit:
