The 2013 design competition, called “Pasyal Ilog Pasig” for short, engaged students of architecture, engineering, design, and planning – future leaders and builders of the Filipino Nation – to participate in a design competition aimed at restoring Pasig River as a prime destination in the Capital. The challenge of the competition was to create a physical intervention that can serve as the impetus to redeeming the lost glory of Pasig River.
