DesignTalks: Locsin, Khadka, de la Cruz

Designers and Curators of the Venice Architectural Biennale’s first Philippine Pavilion

Ayala Museum DesignTalks, a series of lectures with the country’s highly esteemed breed of design and creative professionals, returns this October with a talk by the architects who led the country’s first ever participation in the Venice Architecture Biennale.


Leandro “Andy” Locsin, Jr., curator of the Philippine Pavilion, will discuss the concept, design, and works created for and found in Muhon: Traces of an Adolescent City, our presentation to the international event participated by 61 other countries from May – November 2016. He will be joined by his curatorial team composed of Arch. Sudar Khadka Jr. and Arch. Juan Paolo de la Cruz, who are also Locsin’s colleagues in the Leandro V. Locsin Partners (LVLP) firm.

Happening on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 3 p.m. at the Ayala Museum Ground Floor Lobby, this DesignTalks lecture will walk audiences through the three sections of Muhon which feature sculptural and multimedia works and re-interpretations of iconic Metro Manila buildings, landmarks, districts and urban features by some of the Philippines’ distinguished architects and contemporary artists today.

The works and exhibition design spark discussions and invite audiences to ponder on issues surrounding architectural heritage within the context of a rapidly growing mega-city—particularly our collective disregard for their importance, sustainability, and preservation. Muhon also reimagines sites where iconic Manila landmarks are or were once situated as dynamic urban spaces, inviting us to reflect on the roles that architectural heritage and cultural identity play in the larger agenda of urban development.

Tickets are at Php 225 and are available for sale at Ayala Museum. Discounts apply to senior citizens, students, and Ayala Museum members (please bring a valid ID to avail).
