The Bonifacio Global City Superblocks development has created an inviting urban attraction within metropolitan Manila, the most densely populated city in the world. Superblocks offers high-end retail, commercial and dining within picturesque greenery and an open park within the context of a culture that is only recently exploring the concept of publicly accessible open space. In contrast to its highly commercial surroundings, Superblocks establishes the central public domain where culture and art flourish and quality of life is at its highest.
The design accounts for several layers of sustainability, including social, environmental and economic, revealing how, as landscape architects, we can provide solutions that adapt to changing cultural and economic conditions with a keen design sensibility. Superblocks affords the community a unique opportunity to gather in a large and safe setting to celebrate events, shop, picnic, and enjoy a large green space away from the overwhelming urban cacophony of the surrounding busy streets.
