Anthology: Stories About Architecture


Wazzup Pilipinas!


Architecture
has always been the most definitive and visible reflection of a society and its development. As the Philippines continues to grow as a nation and prepares to become a major part of the global community, it is imperative that we strive to discover and explore the architecture that forms a crucial part of the identity of the Filipino people. We must continue to find ways with which this exploration and evolution can be made relevant not just to our own society but also as a vital contribution to the richness of humanity and its cultural growth. 

Anthology is a three-day architecture festival that features various platforms in support of an architecture that matters. The open festival is free to the public and shall feature exhibited works from a wide sample of practices in the country, as well as workshops and presentations that help us in our understanding of architecture and our built environment. The festival focuses on three core themes that are relevant to the architects and designers of our time - critical thinking, cultural growth, and social impact. A series of panel discussions between architects from private practice, government, and property developers will be invited to share their thoughts and views on architecture and its various forms and evolution. 

We would like to invite you to be part of exciting range of activities. Please take a look at the schedule of events lined up for the festival below. We look forward to seeing you all at Plaza de Roma this coming June 17-19 for this first Anthology Festival.
