The University of the Philippines (UP) Mindanao Dept. of Architecture is one of four Philippine architecture schools who are participating in the "16th Venice Architecture Biennale 2018" in Venice, Italy. The exhibit opened in 26 May and will be on display until 25 November 2018. UP Mindanao is serving as an exhibitor in the Philippine Pavilion with the title "The City Who Had Two Navels" that is curated by Dr. Edson Cabalfin. The UP Mindanao exhibit is titled "Empowerment and Transformation between and across Filipino Ethno-linguistic Cultures through Architecture". The exhibit abstract states that, "A fully self-sufficient socio-cultural ecological village will offer a rich source of indigenous systems: ethno-medicine; organic farming; construction material systems; natural food processing; natural wind mill systems; and water-harvesting systems".
