Architecture meets with National U Singapore for GK Project

Date Posted: Aug 2, 2009 at 02:57:58 AM


The College of Architecture met with representatives of the National University of Singapore’s (NUS) Department of Architecture to discuss a possible tie-up to benefit Adamson University’s participation in Gawad Kalinga’s (GK) housing programs. The meeting took place last July 24, 2009 at the President’s Office Conference Room.

 

NUS was represented by Wong Yunn Chii, head of the Architecture department, and Assistant Professor Dr. Tan Beng Kiang. AdU was represented by Architecture Dean Peter Villanueva and faculty members Arch. Divinia Aspiras and Arch. Roberto Duran. Gawad Kalinga was represented by Arch. Felix Doydora (an AdU alumnus), Arch. Franz Hifol, and Cat Calaylay.

 

Among those discussed during the meeting were the presentation of AdU’s previous relocation and housing projects and the College’s role in the creation of the GK Builder’s Institute, which had become possible through thru the involvement in GK of two alumni of the College including Arch. Doydora, who had done the bulk of GK’s Manual of Design. NUS’ representatives expressed their intention to draw from AdU’s experiences for them to share the kind of expertise needed for the housing program. Dr. Tan also inquired about problems in student engagement and integration of GK participation into the College’s syllabi.

 

Dean Villanueva later gave Mr. Wong and Dr. Tan a tour of the College of Architecture’s facilities. At the end of their meeting, the visitors gave their assurance in participating in a curriculum-based engagement by sending a group of NUS students when their structure is set.
