Megamall IMAX & Skating Rink

How can an indoor skating rink blend into a shopping mall's constellation of amenities?

Manila, Philippines
Completed 2014

For SM Megamall—the largest mall in Asia at the time of its construction—CAZA created an amenities program that interweaves recreational experiences with the shopping areas to create a new center for public life in Manila. The programs include an ice-skating rink and a 251-seat IMAX Theater, attracting visitors from throughout Manila and generating foot traffic for the retail areas. Bold graphic accents and sleek textures define the spaces, reinterpreting geometries from vernacular building types in a contemporary idiom.
