THE FREED PARK, Philippines

Architecture

The Freed Park is an oasis of virtual hubs and public spaces encapsulated within Manila Zoo. Designed around the preservation of endangered animals, the park echoes the concept of freedom. 

Underground markets below the zoo induce an air of healthy urbanism while open piazzas facilitate a host of al fresco activities. The beton brut textures of buildings juxtapose with the surrounding flora, creating a symbiosis of nature and camouflaged architecture.
