It's all systems go for the 3rd Architects in the Academe Assembly

April 7, 2018 | By: 44th UAP Natcon Orcom


The 3rd Annual ARCHITECTS IN THE ACADEME ASSEMBLY. This activity was conceptualized to be a complementary event for architects in the academe.

This year, UAP would like to further strengthen this institutionalized assembly by ensuring more architects involved in the academe could be able to learn from the whole day assembly. This year's theme is "OUR STUDENTS ARE NOW FILIPINO STARCHITECTS!". It is an assembly of architects-educators, who for a change, will listen to the lectures of their former students who in their own rights are now considered to be "starchitects" or celebrated architects who have made extraordinary achievements in the built environment industry. The idea is like "paying it forward" as the speakers are going to give a lecture to their former professors.

The speakers are:

  • Ar. Edson G. Cabalfin, Ph.D. from UP Diliman
  • Ar. Abelardo "Jojo" Tolentino from UST
  • Ar. Christian Vasquez from FEU, and
  • Ar. Royal Pineda from PUP

This will be held on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at the UAP Teatro Arkitekto. This is the Day 00 of the 44th National Convention. The Assembly Convenor is Ar. Joey Manalad, the Chair of the Committee on Research and Academic Institutions under the UAP Commission on Education, with Ar. Wilfredo Gacutan as its Executive Director.
