ACHIEVEMENTS AND AWARDS
Villanueva, Krizia Nicole M.
"The Architecture of my country is a synthesis of our society. Our art of building reflects our people at a specific time, their aspirations, traditions, culture, economic resources, technology, environment, climate, and all other components of Philippine society. This relationship between architecture and society is universal, for it exists in other cultures besides ours. Yet the relationship has another dimension, inasmuch as an architect's work is the expression of one individual, the person who puts himself into the particular problem that a structure addresses, whether it be a house, a building, or any structure designed for a particular function. In this sense it is the architect's subjective view of a specific challenge to which he responds with a personal solution and a personal statement."
