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.

The exhibit features 11 residential spaces that highlight the ingenuity and allure of Filipino design by incorporating elements seen in traditional and indigenous homes into modern designs. It may seem challenging—how can the students maximize local materials while still coming up with contemporary and timeless spaces? The results are beyond inspiring!
