Kenneth Cobonpues NAIA1 Proposal

"Its time someone did something about the worst airport in the world. So we made this design because we believe that no matter how beautiful our country is, our airports give the first and last impressions. This plan is relatively inexpensive and simple to adapt. The plan also involves renovating the interiors to allow faster flow of travelers between security, immigration and departure. The first step has been done. Lets hope our government moves on this proposal quickly."  taken from Kenneth Cobonpue Facebook page. 

Just a little background, Kenneth Cobonpue is an Internationally recognized designer for his classy furniture and concept products. His client includes Hollywood celebrities and European multinational corporation. He grew up and was raised in Cebu and most of his designs somehow were inspired by Cebu and the surrounding islands he said. 

Kenneth Conbonpue, Budji Layug, Royal Pineda in cooperation with NCCP (National Competitiveness Council of the Philippines) [it's the first time I heard of this council actually but whatever that is forgive my ignorance) proposed a pro-bono design of NAIA1 make-over and renovation. As we all know NAIA1 is one of the worst International airport in the world and it's about time we do something about it.
