Spent times here with basketball, kids, thesis, and sister's wedding. Kubo is nice tambayan.
Majestic architecture. The roots are foundation. The trunk holds all pipeline and circulation of lifeforce, expanding its perennial lines every year. The branches hold towards the sunlight and rain. Leaves are its roof, the crowning glory. And its function turning photons into glucose and chlorophyll giving us oxygen from exhaled air is simply like its fruit, making it a worthy household deemed as home. It is like a person. Without bearing fruit, it's just display. But fruit bearing trees are worthwhile. Any skill you have should be enhanced and used for the better. Because... that's what we'll be held accountable for. Your passion never dies.
On that day, we were first year arki students who had to spend to go around the city doing realtime outdoor sketching rain or shine. It was a quiz we call plate. Pares mami was aromatic. The dam was being flooded.
First year was like our fine arts and graphic design period. Way less hectic than the next year's psychological subjects and project people management.
This first year was like being a tourism student learning about each building function and operations within. The main goal was to understand the spirit of the place, its people, the monk, the manang who sells mami outside.. in order to be able to design the place. Sadly as i progress to the higher level into real construction, the art form slowly fades. People just design without telling a story, without a theme that defines the space. Without stimulating the senses and entertaining the heart. They let those with drafting backgrounds make their dream home, they find draftsmen and civil engineers.
But drafting is not design. Drafting has no soul. Design is a story. And architecture is what makes people move, brings people together, defines a religious symbol's stance in society. Architecture is the one you'll always overlook as a lifeless form, and yet it functions the most when it gives you comfort, clarity, cleanliness, convenience, and beauty. ♡
If you are pure in heart, then you'll see God. No wonder why many people think there's no God, because there's a condition to meet before delving into His presence. It's not like everyone sees Him with physical eyes.
