We thank the families and friends of migrant workers, academics, the U.P. Office of the Chancellor, and all guests for coming to the launch. This is a Curating Development project initiated by a team at #Goldsmiths, and is a partnership among several artists, organizations and collectives in the #Philippines, #London, and #HongKong. On 22 February 1987, the Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center was formally inaugurated. Today, the Vargas celebrates 31 years of museum work. @artkitekturafestival Artkitektura presents Exhibit Encounters at the UP Vargas Museum

28 February (Wed) 
2:30pm - Guided tour of the Living Architecture Exhibition 
3:00pm - FROM NATURE TO ARCHITECTURE: Gaudi's Sagrada Familia with Ar. Choie Funk

Free and open to the public, limited slots. Pre-register via vargasmuseum@gmail.com. 
The story of Gaudi's life speaks of the mystery of all exceptional talent with which every human being could be endowed. Coupling this notion with that particular era during which he was born, Gaudi's whole work was an expression of a period. The Basílica de la Sagrada Família, as with his other works, spans realities of the 19th century straight through the 21st, as we expect its completion in 2026.
