As the world reels from the onslaught of COVID-19, colloquially known as the coronavirus, the implications for the architecture profession are uncertain. Yet in the face of these challenging conditions, UAP National President Arch. Benjamin K. Panganiban, Jr. remains relatively optimistic as he issued the Action Plan of the UAP in response to this pandemic crisis. In his latest report, Arch. Panganiban updated members on how UAP and Filipino Architects are responding to COVID-19, and acknowledged the support of UAP members with national government and LGUs in dealing with the COVID-19 problem and its aftermath.
"I want to especially express my thanks and deep appreciation to each and every one of you, particularly to our National Board, Executive Directors, Committee Chairs, Chapter Presidents and the General Membership for the resilience and teamwork and for your tremendous efforts you have demonstrated during these past few weeks under extraordinary time constraints", said Arch. Panganiban.
He also stressed "As we move through this difficult time, we hope to find some new ways to maintain our sense of community and connection. We greatly value your patience, empathy, creativity, and resilience as we face these extraordinary challenges together."
