Unlike usual reports, Collaborative Architecture’s decade wrap-up was not just about finished projects. “While we are extremely proud of the key moments and milestones achieved in the duration, some of our best efforts are in the realm of unbuilt projects and competitions,” says Collaborative.
In 2017, Collaborative teamed up Jurgen Mayer Architects, which allowed both firms to get shortlisted in a highly prestigious, 2-stage international competition for the BCDA Iconic Tower in Manila, Philippines.
