WTC-Manila. Officially finished on December 19, 2011. The construction of my own rendition of Manila’s World Trade Center took about 6 months. It is my third 3G type structure (on my own structure criteria) that was built. The design of the WTC-Manila is the most complex of all the new generation designs that I created.
The building was originally planned to have 20 floors. It was finally decided to have 35 floors in order to cater more office space.
The main entrance of the WTC-Manila has a large open space inside, with ceiling height up to fourth floor.Large portion of the entrance facade is designed with blue-stained glass to let natural light penetrate inside. A number of diagonal-like supporting beams are observable.
One of the main goal of this project is to promote the Philippines in the global economic competitiveness. The structure was designed to engage with large multi-national companies. Also, this building may house diplomatic offices and international institutions.
A state-of-the-art convention center is part of the WTC-Manila Project. Aside from the main auditorium, WTC-Manila has several smaller event halls. Just beneath the floors of the main auditorium is an entrance to car parks.
The structure also has an elevated promenade, an outdoor space just at the top of the WTC-Manila’s podium. It is a potential place to create sky garden, or cafeterias.
WTC-Manila is topped with helipads for aviation transport. It also has a 9-storey high radio antenna.
I maintained the ratio of approximately 1mm to 1meter during the construction of this diorama. This ratio is the same as my basis for the sizes of structures in Minopolis City and other 3G and 4G type structures.
This is an aerial photo of current Manila’s WTC. This is very very far from WTC in some other countries where they have corporate office space and amenities. My own rendition of WTC-Manila is just an expression of how I want my country to be great again.
