The innovative and imaginative Filipino spirit finally finds a home in Greenbelt 5. This new program is part of the much-awaited re-development scheme of the Greenbelt area. Putting an emphasis on the Philippine house, Greenbelt 5 in partnership with Ayala Museum proudly present Beyond Designs, a design talk series featuring numerous Filipino trailblazers in interior design and architecture.
Well-known Filipino interior designers and architects will be asked to curate their own exhibits using one-of-a-kind furnishing pieces from the different shop merchants located on level 3 of Greenbelt 5 such as Ito Kish, Designs Ligna, Aguas Domicillo , Cereo, Budji Layug, and many more. Each inspired, modern furnishing utilizes indigenous materials found only in the Philippines and high quality imported materials that ultimately celebrates the love of home and family of Filipinos and their pioneering talent in the field of interior design and architecture.
The first speaker and curator of the Beyond Designs opening exhibit will be the brilliant architect Dan Lichauco, the managing partner of Archion Architects. He earned his bachelor’s degree in the University of Santo Tomas and his master’s degree in the University of Michigan. A former apprentice under the esteemed firm Leandro V. Locsin and Associates, he went on to become one of the top architects in the country earning numerous projects under his belt. Dan Lichauco not only advocates for green living but also puts an emphasis on “mirroring the complex Philippine culture” in his designs.
Beyond Designs will be held in the Home Section of Greenbelt 5 located at the 3rd floor lobby on September 23, 2010 at 4:30 pm.
