ArchiNEXT: HCG Young Designers’ Competition (AYDC)

ArchiNEXT: HCG Young Designers’ Competition (AYDC) is one of Hocheng Philippines Corporation’s impressive corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs.

Introduced eight years ago, ArchiNEXT is a student competition that challenges the ingenuity and proficiency of young architectural students in designing sound, yet sustainable architectural masterpieces.

ArchiNEXT is in joint partnership with United Architects of the Philippines (UAP) and the Council of Deans and Heads of Architecture Schools in the Philippines (CODHASP) – providing a platform for young designers to showcase their limitless creativity.

The Grand Winners of this year’s ArchiNEXT2022 are from Bulacan State University they are: Ivan Victor Mendoza, Frances Abk Serebo and Clyde Manuel Amoranto together with their College Dean, Ar. Godesil Lejarde. From left to right: HCG VP David Chang, CODHASP President Arch. Chona Ponce, UAP National President Don Don De Guzman and HCG SVP/OIC Eugene Lin.

This year, the ArchiNEXT2022 theme is “Lulinghayaw: A Localized Sustainable Eco-tourism destination.” The vision was to create an eco-tourism destination that promotes Philippine architecture and culture, community and nature, incorporating sustainable principles into the design and unique cultures that the chosen location offers. Lulinghayaw is a Visayan term for take a trip or go out for leisure or vacation. As the tourism and hospitality industries were badly hit, this is HCG’s response challenging the youth in terms of design.

Very much attuned to the call of the times, HCG Chairman Mr. Patrick Chiu, articulated: “We want to ensure sustainability and relevance in the next generations because we believe that if we take care of our environment, social and how we do things (governance) then everything will follow.”
