Cagayan de Oro developer and architect joins World Architecture Festival 2014, talks on resilient development

Can you imagine a Cagayan de Oro green property developer being with the world’s top architects and as one of the guest speakers at the World Architecture Festival in Singapore? Italian architect and Cagayan de Oro developer Arch. Romolo V. Nati has just done that. He is representing the Philippines as a guest speaker at the festival. Arch. Nati is the executive chairman and CEO of Italpinas Euroasian Design and Eco-Development Corp. (ITPI), an Italian-Filipino real estate firm specializing in green architecture and design.

The World Architecture Festival 2014 is an annual and largest celebration of architectural marvels in the world. It is a three-day event that started last Oct. 1 and ends today. It is also a global competition that seeks to honor the best in building design.

Arch. Nati gave a talk on Resilient Developments for Vulnerable Environments focusing on the Philippines during the second day. He was also elected as one of the judges for the shortlisted entries under the House category. Joining him at the festival is ITPI President Atty. Jojo Leviste.

In his talk, Nati stressed the importance of high-performance design in buildings in order for it to be sustainable and at the same time reduce the impact on the environment.

“The Philippines experiences frequent natural disasters every year. This makes the country very vulnerable as houses in the Philippines are generally not built to withstand extreme weather conditions. As a developer, our designs very well address this issue. By studying nature and the local climate of an area, we are able to design buildings that not only mitigate environmental impact but can endure extreme weather conditions,” shared Nati.

Atty, Leviste also shared his views on the company’s participation at the festival: “We are very proud to be part of this prestigious festival. It is indeed an extraordinary experience for us. We are thankful and honored that we had the opportunity to showcase our sustainable projects and share our ideas with the best architects in the world.”
