Gold Award

SILONG is a shelter, a basement, a house where everyone dwells to live anchored on living one with nature. A design made by PAUL JOHN JANDOC, the Gold Award winner of AYDA 2020 in the Philippines.

I like his concept in designing, when he used the bamboo as part of his design.  For me, bamboo trees are durable and can long-stand different climates.

BAGASSE MOUNTAIN RESORT is designed by MARGARET THERESE (Maita Hagad), designing for memory and sustainability. It has also bagged the Interior Design Gold Award in the Philippines and the recipient of the Best Sustainable Design Award.


Pretty lucky indeed. They managed to win the GOLD & the BEST! And even they won not one, but two awards in their life. And what I personally gain from them is that contest-winning isn't about the luck — it's the experience they have. As a social media manager, I've worked with clients depended to boost likes, comments, and follows on social media accounts. And that has given me a road plan for how contests work about. And for these young Architect and Interior Designer,  they managed to answer well and defend their designs with a wide knowledge coming from the theme given to them.

Their determination and confidence is the result of their hard work that boost their chances of winning.
