Architecture + Design

BAST University

Cebu, Philippines

Located in the island of Mactan, BAST is a pioneering project to create a campus for educational facilities and young professionals.

The architecture is conceived as learning landscapes. It acts as a mat building where circulation and modular components define a pedestrian infrastructure. The architecture promotes the dialogue between spaces to learn, experiment and share knowledge with spaces to rest, sports and meet.

Due to the climate conditions the main path is a shaded and protected loop, other secondary paths offers options to experience gardens and nature. The orientation of the building is achieved by arranging clusters of rooms and small squares in-between linear components. The project offers too spaces for the public to come an enjoy such as event spaces, cafes and co-working.
