In any aspect of our lives, it's always a good idea to take a step back and appreciate what we have. For the Polytechnic University of the Philippines' graduating class under the BS Interior Design program, it's all about going back to our roots and making use of materials that we have around us. The exhibit entitled BAHAY KUBO, SARI-SARI: Interior Design Innovations through Ingenious Filipino Inspirations shines the spotlight on folk architecture and interior design. It aims to raise awareness and appreciation of Filipino art, design, and culture.
