  • CCP unveils winning design for 2017 Holiday Light Installation
  • The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and OMNI (Yatai International Corporation) is proud to announce the winner of the HOLIDAY LIGHT INSTALLATION COMPETITION for 2017, and it’s something that can truly be called a Filipino “Christmas Tree”.

Jardin, ASEAN-National Organizing Council Consultant, Mr. Henry Yang, OMNI Operations Manager and Mr. Ariel SR Yonzon, Department Manager, CCP Production and Exhibition Department at the CCP Little Theater Lobby.

    CCP re-invented last year’s competition, having this year’s focus on Philippine lantern-making technology. Rochelle Ong and Louie Suizo of WTA Architecture & Design Studio, a pair of young architects won out in the end with their “Habi ng Pagkakaisa: Weaving the Multi-Cultural Filipino Together”.

    HABI NG PAGKAKAISA. Here’s the winning design up close.

    Inspired by the geometrical patterns of various weaving traditions in the Philippines such as the Kalinga in Luzon, the Bagtason of the Visayas, and the Bagobo, the Mandaya, and T’Boli of Mindanao, their proposed design “aims to empower the weaving industry of our nation, which is deeply rooted in our rich culture as it is the same for all ASEAN countries.”

    ABOUT HABI NG PAGKAKAISA. Ong and Suizo talk about their winning proposal.

    A collaboration between the CCP and the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, the lanterns continue to be a beautiful showcase of the craftsmanship and ingenuity innate in the traditional Philippine Christmas. The two projects combined express the CCP’s mandate of showcasing artistic excellence through Filipino creativity, as well as the institution’s ongoing partnerships with like-minded corporations and other government institutions.

    Make sure you block off your Friday night as CCP unveils “Habi ng Pagkakaisa” on November 3, 2017, at 6 pm at the CCP Liwasang Asean Park, along with the launch of the regularly anticipated multi-faceted and custom-designed lanterns on display at the façade of the CCP Main Theater Building.
