UST College of Architecture Dean Ar. Rodolfo P. Ventura and Architecture alumnus Benjamin Santiago participated in this year’s International Forum for Architecture Thesis Design in Taiwan & Southeast Asia.

Held from November 25 to December 3, 2024, over 20 universities across Southeast Asia and Taiwan were invited to examine and connect with this year’s theme: New Interpretive Grounds.

Santiago was selected to join the Design Review—a component of the event where a few delegates were chosen then paired to present their thesis projects in detail. A panel of educators highlighted the similarities between their works. The final day of the event saw the presentation of Dean Ventura’s talk titled “Reflections on Milestones and Traditions: Reimagining UST College of Architecture Towards the Future” joining him were six other guest speakers.

The forum was delivered in mixed modality where the first few days of discussions were held online while the last three days were onsite for the presentations of the graduates and commentaries by distinguished design professionals. The onsite sessions were held at the Ming Chuan University Taoyuan Campus for the forum.
