The Freeman - - LIFESTYLE -

The 14th Philip­pine Build­ing and Con­struc­tion Expo (Philbex) Cebu 2017, at the SM City Trade Hall Cebu, runs on its last day to­day. The three-day fair fea­tures pocket events, ex­hibitors, young de­sign­ers’ com­pe­ti­tion, and con­ven­tion talks by lo­cals and in­ter­na­tional speak­ers. This year’s event theme is “Build­ing Bolder Per­spec­tive.”

First VisMin Con­fer­ence of the Philip­pine

In­sti­tute of In­te­rior De­sign­ers (PIID)

The con­fer­ence, con­cep­tu­al­ized by de­sign­ers from Mindanao, Cebu, East­ern Visayas, Panay, and Ne­gros chap­ters, has the theme – “De­sign­ing In­clu­siv­ity,” which focuses on peo­ple’s diver­sity and the way it im­pacts de­sign de­ci­sions. The con­fer­ence sched­ule in­cludes talks by de­sign pro­fes­sion­als from In­done­sia, Thai­land, Malaysia, and the Philip­pines. The top­ics cover in­no­va­tive spa­ces for health­care, trans­form­ing de­sign, ap­pre­ci­at­ing de­sign

her­itage, and the beauty of bam­boo as a nat­u­ral wood.

Pro­jeto: Fur­ni­ture De­sign Com­pe­ti­tion Cebu

The Pro­jeto Fur­ni­ture De­sign Com­pe­ti­tion cul­mi­nates to­day, af­ter a three-day dis­play of scale- model en­tries. The com­pe­ti­tion is in­tended to cat­a­pult young lo­cal tal­ent into strong ca­reers and de­sign paths. Five teams from the Visayas re­gion – who’ve all been tasked to cre­ate a mod­ern-day stand-alone read­ing nook with stor­age pro­vi­sions – vie for the grand prize. The prizes in­clude cash and gift cer­tifi­cates.
