Buensalido Architects' CCP Complex is Inspired by Tapestries

I really like the symbolism behind this design of the CCP Complex (Cultural Center of Philippines). As the center for arts and culture in Asia, specifically a centerpiece of artistic expression for the Filipino soul and spirit, the CCP Complex was designed with the art of tapestry weaving in mind. Not only does this influence stem from the arts, but it also symbolizes the intricate layers of diverse characteristics that form a solid and whole community.

Designed by Buensalido Architects, the CCP Complex really does take on a threaded look. The CPP Complex also abides by all the B.E.R.D.E (Building Ecologically Responsive Design for Excellence) norms, thanks to the use of solar power and other eco-friendly additions.
