Design matters, but experience sells. Designing beautiful structures isn't enough anymore—users are looking for great experiences that can provide them with lasting memories. In our first issue of 2016, BluPrint teaches architects the value of XD (experience design) and how to "design experiences.
We enter the year with the highly-anticipated public opening of the monumental National Museum of Natural History, whose adaptive reuse design has been masterfully led by Dominic Galicia Architects and interior designer firm Periquet Galicia, Inc. We review the architecture and design of Manila’s newest major museum as it reaches completion. Leandro Poco, principal of Leandro A. Poco & Associates, comprehensively dissects why urban planning has failed in Metro Manila and sets out an action plan for the future in order to make the city a healthier, more efficient and more sustainable place to live in. Pritzker Prize-winning starchitects, fashion designers, celebrities and Philippine designers have produced Revolution Precrafted designer prefab homes for the ‘World’s First Liveable Art Park’ at Batulao Artscapes, Batangas. We take a closer look at how the design mantras of architects are used to sell this unprecedented form of residential living. PLUS Judith Torres reviews Formwerkz’s Veranda House in Singapore and finds that large processional spaces, clear sightlines, and small bedrooms make it a home where the family can be a family. Kuala Lumpur-based architectural designer Ihsan Hassan weaves Fabian Tan’s Voilà House into the evolution of the Malaysian bungalow typology and sheds light on an emerging discourse in the city. Aaron Quinto documents and reports the sense of community from acts of resistance, subcultural activities, and basketball at the Western Bicutan Tenement, Taguig.
