Global Practice & ASEAN Integration
UAP is transforming from a national group into a global entity that bridges cultures and geographies. A global UAP will serve as a bridge to provide knowledge and understanding of the global practice of architecture, and will build a professional level of standards through its governance, corporate and social responsibilities, and continuing education requirements. As more and more global members become involved, it will raise the practice and business standards of its members, thus creating a more level and open process for professional practice.
According to Professional Regulatory Board of Architecture Member, Hon. Robert M. Mirafuente, "We just need to prepare professionally and be globally competitive by consistently educating ourselves".
Architect Mirafuente urged all Filipino architects to apply for the accreditation (ASEAN Architect) since they are hoping to have “borderless practice” of architects within ASEAN by 2020.
