Interview with Hpa (Ho & Partners Architects) on City of Pearl Commercial, Hospitality, Residential

What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
City of Pearl, the iconic SMART city of the future, signifies hope and increased social mobility for many generations to come. The 8 islands originate from the shape of the shells, within which boast eight pearls stretched across Manila Bay, illuminated by an unparalleled sunset of wonder, redefining “Pearl of the Orient.” To accentuate such a vision, ribbons of form flow through each island merging with landscape and water into functions for generations of Filippinos.
What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
Our main focus was to create a place which instills a sense of place amongst its visitors and residents. Thus, not only do we have living commodities such as residential and working areas, but we also have 5 star hotels and golf resorts for visitors.
How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
The project was commissioned in 2016 and is currently still ongoing. It is projected to finish in 2020. The project is located at the coastline of Manila in Philippines.
Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
We pursued the inspiration of "hope" and "increased social mobility" for future generations of Filippinos.
What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?
City of Pearl is designed to become the first SMART city in Southeast Asia, with artificial intelligence integrated into the SMART grid, providing real time optimal efficiency. Furthermore, it is centred around sustainable design - using renewable energy like solar and tidal power to ensure effective energy production and consumption. In terms, of facilities, COP is an international community with commercial, residential, convention, healthcare, tourism, education and sports hubs.
What is the most unique aspect of your design?
The City of Pearl harmonizes with its surrounding through the allocation of Community Oriented Facilities and programmes to instil a sense of place amongst its visitors and residents. Along the coast and across golf course lies a waterway which will be streaming with water taxies, an alternate form of moving between areas, enjoying the seaview and greeneries. Here, visitors can experience luxurious lifestyles that Manila has to offer.
