Water Brand in Manila, Philippines by Hartness Vision

Article source: Hartness Vision

Located in front of Manila City Hall, the proposed project by HartnessVision integrates “water branding” into the landscape architecture of a Maynilad water distribution facility. The site is organized around 3 programmed, landscaped axes (nature, access, amenities) in which pedestrians have priority. The presence of systemic infrastructural strategy and notions of environmental stewardship permeate the design language.

  • Software used: Sketchup and 3DS max, with post production in Photoshop. The entire presentation was formatted for PowerPoint presentation to the client (Maynilad) hosting the competition.

Original demolish

The expression of water-channeling and healthy clean water resources play important roles in the concept. Via its references to rural water management techniques, natural resources and civic architectural minimalism, the project (and of course the client) is aligned to a more public sphere of utility.

New concepts

When it rains the buildings become playful interactive sculptures. The new roof configuration allows for water collection and retention as well as climate control. “Entertainment water”, having traveled through chutes and cascades, arrives in rain gardens, further used to water plants, wash service vehicles, or flush toilets. All-glass enclosures mark access points and provide infrastructure for cooling thermal chimneys.
