A Break on the Path ends Here: Still Students for Life

For the past few years, I had enough to give. Knowledge to share and wisdom to spare. The task to teach sometimes call you to assume some knowledge for the process to continue. The truth is, nothing is really head knowledge, you have to re-learn and master what you already know for you to be effective.

I guess Architecture is a never ending quest to learn. One who teaches must continue to seek knowledge. This Semester, I will remain your friend. If there are things you want to ask, ask yourself, your friends, and finally me. If we know the answerS (with an s) we will all discover them.

LCC ARFIEN at 50: The Golden Harvest of Art and Architecture

ARFIEN Logo

Bounded by the main plaza streets
Founded by a commune of sisters,
Born of the passion of artists
And armies of student bach’lors.

From the increase of culture
Knowledge, art and learning
The finest of Bacolod architecture,
Was born in humble beginnings

On the shoulder of Negrense pride
From the diligence of Bacoleno minds
Came the radiance of colorful light
that will forever alter the city’s plight. Continue reading

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

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

Brief: Arch Ian Jay Bantilan joined a National Competition on summer of 2012 and sought help from 5 Students of La Consolacion College – Bacolod City for his Entry “Bakod Bubong Balat”. The entry became a Finalist and later on  unanimously chosen by the judges as the winner of the Competition. Unfortunately, the same Entry was disqualified a month after the Award was given because of the Competition Committee’s strict adherence to the rules – in conflict with the judges’ consensus.

Arch Ian Bantilan decided that the knowledge that he and his students learned can be shared to many more aspiring architects. This workshop is in collaboration with the UAP Bacolod Chapter. The Bakod Bubong Balat Workshop Bacolod City, Philippines – The La Consolacion College – Auditorium was slowly Continue reading
