Let’s just say, this year’s PSID grads were up for the challenge
They say that anyone can be a creative, that everyone has a creative bone in their body to leverage on and build upon. But while this might be true—whether that’s through writing, painting, designing—it takes a special skill set to create for someone else.
Making something out of nothing within a certain set of boundaries isn’t easy; making someone else’s vague vision into something of a reality isn’t simple. Despite this, it’s done time and time again by talented individuals who have dedicated their lives into channeling their passions and skills for others. And today we’re celebrating the PSID graduating class of 2019 for taking on this challenge, as well as shapes and sustainability.
Entitled Hugis ATBP, the students were tasked to work with the geometric shapes assigned to them. Upping the ante, they also had to design with sustainability in mind.
So, how did they fare?
HUGIS: Parisukat at Parihaba—Uniquely Urban
Designers, design for an urban individual. What does your client need and can you fit everything into 30 sqm?
HUGIS: Bilog at Biluhaba—Serene Suburbs
Answer the question: Can you and how do you cut corners in a circular space?
HUGIS: Tatsulok—Restful Retreats
Whoever said three corners is a little stifling has nothing on these PSID grads.
Did this year’s PSID graduating class succeed? It certainly seems like it. Designing for their own clientele, every space in the showcase was different and unique and stood out in their own ways. And what becomes evident, as you walk through each execution, is that there is so much more you can do with a corner if you throw in a little imagination.
And if you can’t, if you can’t see beyond a white wall and predisposed corners and one layer of floor space, there’s no need to worry. Strike up a conversation with PSID 2019 for the entire month of October if you have to. Trust us, you'll find someone to do it for you.
The Hugis ATBP showcase from PSID Class 2019 is open to the public from October 1-31, 2019 at the 5th Floor, Greenfield Tower, Mayflower St, Mandaluyong City.
