Get To Know The Winners And Finalists Of The Grohe-World Architecture Festival 2017

The event happened last Monday was slightly different from the usual Grohe event, highlighting what the company is about and how architects take advantage of them.
I'm truly honored to be with the world class Filipino architects as Grohe, the leading German brand of bathroom fixtures and shower systems, honors the winners and the finalists of these master architects of their work.
And one has emerged the category winner in the most prestigious architectural festival competition in the world. They have been doing this for the last 10 years.

The World Architectural Festival or WAF held at Arena Berlin last Nov. 15-17 which is similar to Oscars but for architecture, attracted 400 entries in 68 different countries, and four were from the Philippines who joined the elite few as they rose and out-champed others, reaching for the top.
There were inspiring stories heard on how they created something that really mattered and for the good of the community, not just for themselves.
See the winning work on exhibit from Dec. 18-22, 2017 at the Promo Garden of
Central Square Mall in BGC.

The GROHE ZEITGEIST DESIGN AWARD, envisioned to become an  annual recognition of  Philippine architecture that brings glory to the country.

The first four awardees  of the GROHE ZEITGEIST DESIGN AWARD  are the Philippine finalists and winner of the WAF 2017.

Project  Streetlight Tagpuro emerged the winner in the  Civic and Community – Completed and Small Projects categories.

This  project of Eriksson Furunes, Leandro V. Locsin Partners (LVLP) and Boase was a win as well for the Filipino spirit of Bayanihan
Rising from the devastation wrought by Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda as it was locally known in the country, Leandro V. Locsin Partners + Eriksson Furunes + Boase, together with the Streetlight community steered the rebirth of the orphanage swept to the sea.

The Chapel of St. Benedict and St. Scholastica by WTA Architecture and Design Studio was shortlisted   under the Religion – Completed and Best Use of Color categories.

Pambujan, one of the poorest towns in Northern Samar  lacked a proper hospital, When WTA stepped up to help, they also built a chapel for the court yard;  a chapel whose unique design, much like two hands clasped in prayer,  would then gain the attention of the WAF 2017 jurors.

WTA Architecture and Design Studio had two more projects shortlisted :  namely El Museo del Prado en Filipinas in the Display Category and One Valenzuela Mall in the Shopping – Completed category.

The New Supreme Court design concept
The New Supreme Court design concept by Jorge Yulo Architects & Associates , was  also shortlisted in the World Architecture Festival 2017 under the Civic – Future Projects category.
The design that broke the mold of   classically-inspired Supreme Court buildings worldwide that project an acropolitan and commanding image to convey a declaration of influence, immovability, and authority. In contrast, this concept proposes a structure with visual and physical semi-permeable membranes for walls to convey transparency and accountability.

One Ayala
One Ayala by Visionary Architecture :  shortlisted   under the Infrastructure – Future Projects category.

Faced with an opportunity to design a mixed-use development on the site formerly occupied by the Hotel InterContinental Manila, the gateway to Makati Central Business District, Ayala Land partnered with Visionary Architecture to make the once impermeable site accessible to a mixed gradient of users, symbolizing the democratic ideals of social integration over isolation, of inclusion over exclusion.

On exhibit as well are the award winning products of GROHE unveiled during WAF 2017 : SENSIA ARENA, the groundbreaking shower toilet , and SMART CONTROL, that gives perfect showering with a push.
