Architect Emmanuel “Manny” Miñana will be guest speaker at Citem’s 60th Manila Furnishings and Apparel Manufacturers’ Exchange (FAME) today, Oct. 18, 3 p.m. at SMX Convention Center, Manila.
His project, Villa Marina, a private resort-residence, was short-listed this year in the prestigious World Architecture Festival (WAF) 2014 held last Oct. 1-3 in Singapore.
He is the first Filipino architect in the Philippines to land on the shortlist in the WAF’s eight-year history. Miñana will share his thoughts on the design process and his recent architectural projects in the country.
As one of the speakers at FAME’s Design Talks series, Miñana will expound on his experience in the WAF 2014 that has helped bring Philippine architecture to an international platform.
