Designed by GOMMAdesign [1] and +ITA Project [2], Coral City is as a self-sustaining and disaster-resistant eco-village for the Philippines [3]. Starting from the idea that natural structures are the best sources of inspiration in the design of new and sustainable communities, the coral-inspired master plan aims to foster community while also integrating cutting-edge sustainable design. Coral city was awarded with the special ‘Energy Award’ at the DAtE international competition.
