Iloilo Esplanade Wins NCCA Haligi ng Dangal Awards

November 21, 2018

The Iloilo Esplanade wins as the honoree for Landscape Architecture at the 2018 Haligi ng Dangal Awards. 

"A pioneering landscape work to redevelop a once neglected riverbank, the Iloilo River Esplanade generates a vibrant, walkable and memorable open space vital in today’s urban civic life. Stretching more than a kilometer along the banks of the Iloilo river, the esplanade reclaimed a major thoroughfare for the benefit of pedestrians, creating a space of civic empowerment. As part of the program to rehabilitate the Iloilo river, it provides a space for leisure and tranquility, and revitalizes the connection between river, city, and people."

The Haligi ng Dangal is a biannual award conferred upon completed/executed works in Architecture and its Allied Professions, namely: Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, and Environmental Planning.
