MetaArch3: Sharpening the Saw

     The Brown Bauhaus - Alternative School of Architecture + Design (BBAAD) has formally opened its doors for interested MetaArch3 applicants through its Public Orientation held at Design Center of the Philippines (DCP), which is located at the historical CCP Complex. The recently concluded Public Orientation for batch one was attended by architects, architecture students (Filipino and foreigners), and in-house industrial designers of DCP. 
     MetaArch is an Advanced Design Foundation Course where professionals and students learn, discover, and create authentic designs by undergoing the course's very holistic curriculum. Here, participants will be called "journeymen" and will discover the true art of creativity by studying ten (10) modules: Philosophy Foundation, Art theory, Geometry, Theory of Contrast, Fragmented Weaving, Dimensional Color, Installation Art, Poetry, Horticulture, and Music + Dance.

"We focus on the process of designing, which is patterned in the pedagogy of Bauhaus. In this course, we will eliminate symmetry and will focus more on the non-symmetry and fragmentation. This will be a reeducation. We will not rely on software and technology. Here, it is all about the head, the heart, and hands." - Architect Walther Ocampo, BBAAD Studio Master.

     MetaArch years one and two have created graduates with powerful design philosophy and taste. These acquired skills lead them (MetaArch Graduates) to fast employment here in the Philippines and abroad. Take note: they landed on the elite "design team" and not on "production team". I can attest to that especially that I was able to witness their transformation. Year three promises the same outcome [plus] great opportunities (with the recent partnership with DCP) for this year's journeymen. MetaArch3 will officially start on May 4, 2015 (Monday) at Design Center of the Philippines. Tuition fee is just PhP 5,000.00. Such a small amount in exchange of huge opportunities waiting for successful journeymen. 

     Hurry! It's time to sharpen your saw! Be sure to be part of MetaArch3! If you think that this blog post is not enough for you to be part of MetaArch3, be sure to attend the Public Orientation for Batch two on May 2, 2015.  
"We badly need artists than professionals." 
- Architect Walther Ocampo, BBAAD Studio Master.
