Anthology Architecture and Design Festival 2020
The historic Fort Santiago in Intramuros, Manila will once again host the Anthology
Architecture and Design Festival, happening on February 7 to 9. Now on its 5th edition, the
event will carry the theme “Think Architecture,” as curated by William Ti, Jr. Principal
Architect of WTA Architecture and Design Studio.
Anthology brings together leading architects, designers, industry leaders, and the general
public in a series of talks, workshops, and collaborations aimed at helping develop and
formulate design-influenced policies that assist and accelerate nation building and urban
The festival seeks to increase awareness of how architecture and design impacts the
environment and society. It also hopes to inspire individuals to challenge current practices
and norms in order to build “socially conscious” architecture, or a built environment that
prioritizes the conditions and needs of all social segments.
Heading into their 13 th year, WTA Architecture and Design Studio is best known for their
initiatives in social architecture that promote social intimacy, freedom of movement, and a
social scale that focuses on architecture that builds communities.
Festival Director William Ti, Jr. is excited about holding the largest architecture festival in
Asia here in the Philippines, with an expected turnout of 6,000 participants this year. It is a
festival that puts the Philippines in the global architecture map and promotes our designers
and architects as thought leaders.
