UA to Host NCCA’s Traveling Design Exhibit

The UA College of Engineering and Architecture will host the Luzon leg of the “LOOB AT LABAS: TALAKAYAN AT PAGPAPARANGYA”, a travelling exhibit that highlight projects and initiatives that show how architecture and the arts can be made accessible to the different sectors of the society.

The exhibit is a project of the National Committee of Architecture and Allied Arts (NCAAA) of the National Council for Culture and Arts (NCCA). It will feature LAMAN AT LOOB which is about upcycling or the transformation of waste materials into functional and useful products by the Council of Interior Design Educators (CIDE); LUNTIANG POOK which focuses on the conversion of certain barangays into “healthy places” through community landscaping by Philippine Association of Landscape Architects (PALA) and BALAY BALAY TA by Swito Designs which aims to create an educational toy that would engage children in learning and appreciating Filipino architecture.

“Loob at Labas” is produced and curated by ARKICAMP Heritage Fil-Asia, Inc. with Architect Ed Castro, a professor at UA CEA, as project head.

A forum will be held at the College Audio Visual Room (AVR) after the formal opening of the exhibit on January 22 at 12:30PM. “Loob at Labas” will be open for public viewing from January 22 to 27 at the UA College Library.
