Our ProgeCAD Philippine partner has participated in this prominent event promoting our software together with “green topics”. For three days last week Cebu City hosted the PIA Convention and around 500 architects visited the city on this occasion.
The meeting theme was “Touching Earth Touching lives” and it focused on ecological and social awareness in design. The Philippine Institute of Architects, the event organiser, grabbed this opportunity to spread the “green culture” to the participants. The convention has become a success thanks to the presence of three notable speakers: Kazuko Sejima, Kundoldibya Panitchpakdi and Doosdee Thaitakoo. They contributed to the event expressing their ideas on “Architecture is environment”, “Sustainable Housing in the Time of Climate Change” and “Balancing Conservation and Development in Historic Town Centers”. The convention could not certainly overlook the environmental issues the Philippines have been facing, there were a few lectures about sustainable houses and way of balancing conservation on historical places.
Dennis Mayo, director at the Architechy, was full of enthusiasm sharing his impression about the event: “The attendees were very warm and impressed with the progeCAD software”. He also presented our software in one of the main assembly organised by PIA.ProgeCAD is always sensible to friendly environmental topics and the 80th Philippine Institute of Architects National Convention was the best occasion to increase its green attitude.
Soon our Philippine Distributor will be taking part in another exciting event, the UAP CONEX 2013 tradeshow taking place on the 18-20 April 2013, we will keep you updated on further initiatives!
