Symposium on Architecture and Environment

Contributed by UAP Quezon City Chapter

Our country and the whole Asian region has recently been beset by natural and man-made catastrophes. As analyzed, these were due to widespread environmental degradation brought about by wanton destruction of our natural resources.As architects, our building designs and construction, sometimes, somehow contribute to the deteriorating ecosystem. In our effort to create an aesthetically pleasing and functional abode for our clients, we unconsciously produce one that is designed to be"unfriendly" and destructive to our environment.
