2023 DCC Award Winner
Manila Zoo, Bomanite of Southeast Asia, Philippines
WOW! Winner
First Place: Vertical & Facades, Over 5,000 SF

The Manila Zoo rehabilitation project was done during the height of the pandemic with all the lockdown and movement restrictions. More so, it is an existing zoo so the animals are just being transferred one section at a time and rehabilitation works are done in phases. For this project we did a GFRC Pre Cast installation to simulate bamboo using a combination of customized yellow based color hardener and stains to create the natural bamboo finish. The fabrication workshop was done inside the Zoo complex and we used silicon molds and casted natural bamboo. The result of the GFRC Precast installation created a durable natural looking finish facade installation that covered most of the animal enclosures, fences and gates.
