'Wavy' city centre

A Brooklyn-based architecture and design firm, CAZA, has announced the opening of the City Center Tower located in downtown metro Manila, in the Philippines. The building will be the Filipino headquarters for a range of major international companies, including Google.

The 27 storey-tall mixed-use building features three floors of commercial retail and dining space while also serving as the corporate offices for several prominent global companies. CAZA’s ‘wavy’ design sought to defy the average core and shell design of a standard corporate office building by introducing refreshingly unexpected geometries that produce new experiences for users.

By infusing a series of concentric circles extending across the horizontal axes of each floor, the tower’s exterior facade marries the structural shape of a cube with the free-form organic pattern of a wave.
