Colors of Weaving and A Hidden Christmas Star Highlight CCP Christmas Light Decor

Young, talented architects Rochelle Ong and Louie Suico of WTA Architecture & Design Studio wins CCP’s HOLIDAY LIGHT INSTALLATION COMPETITION 2017 with their simplified Christmas tree design structure that reveals levels of symbolisms of a what Christmas in the Philippines is all about.


This year’s focus of the annual competition between The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and OMNI (Yatai International Corporation) is on Philippine lantern-making technology.


The winning proposal, entitled “Habi ng Pagkakaisa: Weaving the Multi-Cultural Filipino Together”  is inspired by the geometrical patterns of various weaving traditions in the Philippines.  It was particularly inspired  by the Kalinga in Luzon, the Bagtason of the Visayas, and the Bagobo, the Mandaya, and T’Boli of Mindanao. Their proposed design “aims to empower the weaving industry of our nation, which is deeply rooted in our rich culture as it is the same for all ASEAN countries.”


The panel of jurors, which was made confidential until the deliberations on September 20, was composed of the ASEAN-National Organizing Council Consultant Nestor Jardin, CCP Associate Artistic Director Ariel Yonzon, Henry Yang of Yatai International Corporation, and artist Jose Tence Ruiz. Proposals were evaluated based on originality and innovativeness, feasibility of the implementation, ties to the theme and to both the CCP and Omni’s institutional mandates, appropriateness to the surroundings and eco-friendliness.


“Habi ng Pagkakaisa” will be unveiled on 3 November 2017, Friday, 6pm at the CCP Liwasang Asean Park, along with the launch of the regularly anticipated multi-faceted and custom-designed lanterns on display at the façade of the CCP Main Theater Building.

A collaboration between the CCP and the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, the lanterns continue to be a beautiful showcase of the craftsmanship and ingenuity innate in the traditional Philippine Christmas. The two projects combined express the CCP’s mandate of showcasing artistic excellence through Filipino creativity, as well as the institution’s ongoing partnerships with like-minded corporations and other government institutions.
