UST alumni-led architectural firms recognized at World Architecture Festival

TWO architectural firms led by UST alumni won at the World Architecture Festival 2023 held in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore from November 29 to December 1, 2023.

Buensalido + Architects, a firm owned by Architecture alumni Jason Buensalido and Nikki Boncan-Buensalido, was declared winner under the Ethics and Value Category (WAFX) for their project Pangasinan Barangay Centers.

The same project was also recognized as Highly Commended under the Future Projects-Civic Category.

The firm envisioned the project to be inspired by, designed by, and crafted by the local community, which hopefully creates a high sense of care and ownership toward the barangay centers; it is envisioned to be applied to all 140 barangays in the province, or even to over 42,000 barangays in the country.
