Project “Force”, subsequently known as “Arca”, is a proposed mixed-use center with retail, hotel & residential components. Although the illustration scope was limited to the shopping center portion, great care needed to be taken to ensure the towers were well integrated into the base of the project. This section view was chosen to show the organization of the main entrance and vertical circulation. Public spaces are heavily populated while the rooftop is shown as more subdued with plenty of landscaping, a respite from the urban bustle of Manila.
