Consider this: on the average, eight or nine tropical storms make landfall in the Philippines every year. Last year, a total of 25 tropical cyclones have entered the country, surpassing the average of 19 to 20 cyclones annually, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.
The most disastrous was super typhoon Yolanda, which flattened the Visayas area—destroying houses, uprooting trees, toppling down electrical posts, and leaving more than 6,000 people dead.
Realizing the importance of natural disaster preparedness in the country, the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP), an integrated and accredited professional organization of architects, made innovation and sustainability the group’s top agenda for this year’s expo.
With the theme “Innovative Architecture, Sustainable Future,” the UAP highlights green architecture and ground-breaking design in its lively showcase of products, materials, technologies, and services for building and construction, at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia (MOA) Complex, Pasay City, on April 10-12.

Unlike other construction expos in the country, the UAP ConEx is the only exhibition that is organized by the group of accredited architects showcasing the best from the country’s well-esteemed architects such as Raul Locsin, Meloy Casas, William Coscolluela, Ed Calma and Budji Layug. Over 500 architects are expected to participate in the three-day expo.
Another unique offering of this expo is the face-to-face interaction with professional architects about development and/or renovation of either a residence or office building. The venue is designed to accommodate 600 booths for exhibitors and to be attended by 30,000 visitors of consumers, architects and allied professionals and guests. It is created to be an incubator of inspiration and a place to share critical information on architecture and design.
