Coming Soon: A Libeskind building in the Philippines
Lobby Render, General View.
MANILA.- Daniel Libeskind structures are some of the most imaginative in the world. They can be found across Europe and North America, and very soon in Asia as Libeskind is currently working on projects in China, South Korea, Singapore, and the Philippines.

Century Properties’ Robbie Antonio, who is also behind the partnerships with the Trump Organization and the Forbes Media Group, is the one bringing the New York designer to the Philippines. He initiated a partnership with Libeskind for the architectural design of Century Spire.

“Daniel Libeskind’s work is befitting a modern, dynamic city like Makati,” Robbie Antonio said.

Century Spire will be the eighth building in Century City, a small but richly packed plot of land and home to other amazing skyscrapers like the Versace Home interior-designed Milano Residences and Trump Tower.

Libeskind’s project portfolio is prestigious as it is diverse. He has done museums, memorials, residential, and commercial developments.

His most notable museum projects include the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester, The Military History Museum in Dresden, Contemporary Jewish Museum in California, and the Royal Ontario Museum in Canada.

“It’s exciting what a Libeskind structure can do to a city,” Antonio said.

Libeskind is also behind the winning masterplan for the reconstruction of the World Trade Center in New York’s Ground Zero.

While Libeskind will do Spire’s architectural design, another world-famous designer has signed up to do its interiors: Armani/Casa.

Armani/Casa is famed for its smooth interior design style, lifting color palettes and design inspiration from Armani’s yearly collections.

It looks like they are going to build something very special in this part of the world. If ever we had to live in Manila, Century Spire it seems would be the place to be.
