"Layag Islas" (Islands in Flight) is the award-winning concept for the Circulo Del Mundo Rotunda Nationwide Design Competition held in 2008. It is a joint undertaking of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the Manila International Airport Authority to showcase Metro Manila as the country's window to the world.

The construction of the structure started on September 11, 2009 and was completed in August 2010. It summarizes the Filipino's rich cultural heritage and profound sense of affinity with the global community.

Designed by Adrian Lorenzo Alfonso, Alfredo Alfonso, Maria Mynn Alfonso, Carlo Tibajua and Chris Jimenez, "Layag Islas" is conceived to be the embodiment of the Filipino's dreams and aspirations.

The MMDA chief said he is optimistic that this architectural landmark will further encourage artists to create world-class works of arts.

"Layag Islas" is one of the vital components of the MMDA's physical improvement project within the immediate vicinity of the NAIA to enhance the image of the airport complex to be at par with other similar facilities worldwide.
