The Architecture College Week 2022, organized by the UST College of Architecture, conducted various online activities to highlight both faculty and student excellence during their college week. These were live streamed through the official Facebook page of the college.
“Rendezvous: Digital Arkitalk Series” featured notable alumni based locally and abroad, as well as those that are in private practice and government offices, who shared their inspiring experiences in relevant topics such as topping the licensure exams, pursuing international studies, and setting-up a private practice. Ar. Noel Cruz, Ar. Caryn Paredes-Santillan, Ar. Christian Lyle La Madrid, Ar. EL Plan, and Ar. Ramil Tibayan, were the guest speakers for the first episode.
There were also online exhibits on the History and Theory of Architecture (accessible through: https://bit.ly/HirayangAnyo) and Architecture Design that showcased the best works of the students. They also had a live manual color rendering exhibition with markers and watercolor, as well as an online webinar about public housing and resiliency with Ar. Audrey Santos and Ar. Vinson Serrano as the speakers.
The awarding of the Architectural Design competition was also held during the week-long celebration. The competition featured entries that showcase the architecture of the future. Entries are evaluated by local and international judges.
Fully virtual, this year’s college week celebration was well attended not just by students but also by parents, alumni, and other guests. More information about the works, winners, and the events that transpired during the week-long celebration can be found on the college’s Facebook page
