MADE Architecture – Modern Bamboo Design House – Architecture Competition Entry

I

Dried from Exhaustion
Lost in the Translation
Confused in the Submission
Expectant in completion
___That was who I am

III

One came a call
While I was in the Mall
Another meeting, o darn
To Manila I will return

II

Spent from Exertion
The Joy of Triumph
The Pain of Defeat
The taste was all mine.

IV

They say, they pay the fare
I, the rest, my dear,
But sad another couple absence,
I am a Professor, you see.

V

So, I’m off to the Airport and fly
To rent a Hotel for a Night
But sleepless, restless, mindless I tread,

To the Death,
To Obscurity
To Oblivion
To the Mercy

the Mercy of the (MADE) Metrobank Committee. Continue reading

XVIII

For we shouldn’t place our hope in Man
Whose minds may change like shifting sands
They are mortal, undependable
Their thoughts and minds are unstable

XIX

Congratulations, Celebration, Joy and Grief,
The Judge Announce, O what deceit!
Hollow words echo across the Halls
While I run down through the walls

XX

A wriggly man to me, approach
We’re glad you Won but take these Notes
We plead with you, be silent Please
Until we (Metrobank Foundation) launch our Press Release

XXI

So, I’m off to my Hotel, to pack my Bags
Walking like a Zombie, my Mind’s like a Rag
But Sleepless, Restless, Mindless I Pack,

To the Death,
To Obscurity
To Oblivion
To the Mercy

the Mercy of the (MADE) Metrobank (Foundation) Jury.

XXII

Two weeks past, this call I catch
From the Validating Team
And, awaiting them I glance my Watch
Waiting for Eternity it Seems.

XXIII

The team arrives, and Headway dives
Into files and every Crook and Cranny
Collecting Info, Person, Place and Time
to Clear some doubt if there is any. Continue reading

Fountainhead, Standing for your Design


Archian - Life, Bacolod, Architecture, Finances & Dubai
The story is about an idealistic architect Howard Roark, who is expelled from college because his designs fail to fit with existing architectural thinking. He seems unemployable until he finally lands a job with an avant-garde Designer but struggling Architect Henry
Cameron. However within a few years Cameron drinks himself to death. He warns Roark that if he stands in this idealism, the same fate awaits him, unless he compromises his ideals and “go with the crowd”.Roark agrees to design a tower for his friend, without pay, but insists that the client accepts his design as is. The Client adulterates the design and constructs it. Roarke sabotages the construction and is called to appear in court.
