Construction began in June 2018 on this 4,900 square meter Sports Center with a goal to remember the Jesuit peregrination that generated Xavier School in the first place. The project’s architectural expression has its pragmatic roots, such as response to the program and to the climate, but they are tied together by the sense of the Jesuit journey from Shanghai to Manila to escape the Communists. This is why, for example, we use brick for the base of the building, as a reminder of the brick that dominated the Jesuit campus in Shanghai that Xavier School's founding priests were forced to leave.
