ICYMI: Manila Central University (MCU) is about to renovate their campus in collaboration with the widely renowned architecture firm Palafox. According to MCU’s press release, the university aims to welcome and engage new learners with a new conceptual masterplan for the campus’ overall look. 

“The conceptual master plan was developed to embody MCU as a center of educational  excellence, integrating academic, healthcare, and wellness in its design. It’s no secret that when the eye sees something beautiful, it is inspired,” Principal Architect Felino “Jun” Palafox Jr. said. “When you’re amidst a setting that’s such, you’re stimulated  to create, learn, and take it all in.”

As the Caloocan campus has always been surrounded by nature, the renovations are equal parts functional, environmentally friendly, and aesthetically pleasing. For example, student conveniences like shedded walkways and spacious study areas will be seamlessly integrated with lush greeneries and sustainable structures. 

Generally speaking, the campus’ new design looks super promising so far! MCU students can expect wide, open spaces featuring clean and contemporary upgrades that are still reminiscent of the school’s rich heritage of 118 years.
