UAPGA continues the never-ending fun and knowledge with LARO 20: Kahangturan
Itigil na ang siesta, tara na’t umariba sa pista!
On April 17, 18, 24 and 25, the United Architects of the Philippines Graduate Auxiliary (UAPGA) celebrated the third virtual L.A.R.O. (Learn Architecture, Review Out-of-the-box) via UAPGA Neo Community Facebook Group (exclusive for UAPGA Neo members only) with this year’s theme “L.A.R.O. 20: Kahangturan”. Kahangturan is a Bisaya word which means “Never-ending”. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of the event, hence, the title. For as long as UAPGA exists, there will always be L.A.R.O.
On Day 1, the first topic was ALE Tips and Tricks presented by the first guest speaker, Ar. Gerard Alejandro. Followed by Ar. Roy de Guzman who shared his knowledge about the History of Architecture. It was ended by Ar. Gene Lambert Giron about Architectural Design.
Day 2 covered two topics: Building Utilities and Building Laws presented by the guest speakers Ar. Annie Pugeda and Ar. Geomillie Guittap respectively.
Various topics were tackled on Day 3 by different guest speakers namely Ar. Melduard Hernandez who shared his knowledge in Theory of Architecture, Ar. Ron Paolo Viray for Professional Practice and Ar. Joshua Dado for Site Planning.
On its last day, two topics were discussed: Tropical Design presented by Ar. Rosette Tayag and Building Technology presented by Ar. Jeremiah Queddeng.
L.A.R.O. 20: Kahangturan may be different from the previous (pre-pandemic) LAROs, the UAPGA Community was still able to give and share their never-ending knowledge and support to the aspiring architects of the country. Isang selebrasyon, isang organisasyon tungo sa ating propesyon.
Until the next L.A.R.O, mga ka-UAPGA!
