What does a building do for a government? A government building represents both our aspirations and our reality: it is a mirror and a telescope into the future. Successful civic buildings become symbols for their communities.

The Camsur Capitol is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show the world what Camsur can be through architecture. We envision a civic architecture borne out of the raw and direct manner in which nature crosses with civilization in the Philippines.

The building proposes a synthesis of landscape and architecture through the atavistic transformation of organic forms into a proto-technological instrument that modulates light and heat. The Camsur Capitol is a project that builds on the possibility of designing a different future for architecture by repurposing the endangered material of indigenous cultures and local industry.

The Camsur Capitol consists of a spiraling assembly of Pili nut-shaped husks made from metal sun-screens that in turn produce a series of shaded roof terraces organized around a covered open-air atrium with a dramatic helicoid ramp terminating at a public roof deck offering views of the neighboring volcano, Mt. Isarog. Source by CAZA.
