Anthology Festival Director and WTA Principal WIlliam Ti, Jr. discusses the Anthology Festival 2020 with Bluprint.
“Talking without thinking gets you nowhere,” reasons William Ti, Jr., Anthology Architecture and Design Festival Director and WTA Architecture + Design Studio Principal, when asked about the fifth Anthology Festival’s theme, Think Architecture. The Anthology Festival 2020 theme, according to earlier press releases by Anthology, is an “invitation to explore and ponder the ideals and frameworks that shape the structures built to house people’s needs and desires,” which hopes to “refocus efforts on architecture itself and encourage and improve awareness and understanding of the practice.” Six thousand festival-goers, including invited speakers within Asia, and from Europe and America, are expected to troop to Intramuros, Manila from February 7 to 9.
With the festival just around the corner, BluPrint spoke with Ti to discuss the planning of Southeast Asia’s largest architectural gathering, and the new activities we can expect in the annual festival. Here’s an excerpt from the brief interview.”
