Coral City is an architectural design concept for a mixed-use socialized housing project in Quezon City, Philippines. It was ITPI’s winning entry for the Design Against the Elements international architectural competition. Coral City is a 30,000 SQM energy-efficient green complex comprising a cluster of individual buildings housing several structures and spaces including flood-proof shelters, inner courtyards, parking and other environment-friendly facilities. Its green features include a rain water collection system, photovoltaic solar panels on the roof, as well as permeable and perforated facades that allow wind to pass through and minimize the impact of strong winds during typhoons. The buildings and walkways are also detached from the ground providing protection from floods.
