Manila Exchange

A framework for the rapid expansion of Metro Manila, Philippines

Urban design proposal, 2015

Site Planning & Environmental Systems, MIT DUSP

Muntinlupa, Metro Manila, Philippines

 

Manilia Exchange proposes a framework for the rapid expansion of Metro Manila, using a planned expressway dike along the lakeshore of Muntinlupa as an opportunity to project a new paradigm for urban growth. The "exchange" of private capital for public infrastructure is recast here as an opportunity to experiment with new forms of social housing, open space, and land reclamation, while challenging the typical patterns of development and built form.
