Redefining space and time

Interior design enthusiasts have this weekend, until October 31, to catch the  graduation exhibit by the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) class of 2018 entitled “JUXTAPOSE: Espasyo at Panahon.” Ongoing at the 11th floor, Santolan Town Plaza. ‘JUXTAPOSE’ showcases 17 student-made booths that explore adaptive reuse as a solution to design problems by repurposing old buildings or sites for a function other than what it was originally built for. Co-presented by Santolan Town Plaza, in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, the exhibit is divided into three categories: Tahanan, Pangkalakal, and Pang-Industriya.

Redefining space and time

“The Philippines has a lot of markable cultural heritage buildings so there’s a strong potential to conduct adaptive reuse on these structures,” explained Mary Ann Bulanadi, PSID instructor and volunteer curator at the Bahay Nakpil-Bautista. “Since it’s a new thing locally, the PSID 2018 exhibits utilizing adaptive reuse concepts can serve as a laboratory of sorts to help teach young interior designers to be competent in working on old heritage sites as their real-life projects. We are preparing the stage for that future.”
