Traveling is one of the most enriching experiences one could ever have. Getting to learn about an unknown place’s culture, listening to the beats of the streets, and of course, marveling at the design and architecture of famous landmarks.
The Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) gives you the feeling of traveling the world without even leaving the city as they mount “Globalscapes,” the graduation exhibit of the school’s Advanced Class of 2014, slated to run from October 1 to 31 at the Supersale Hall of SM North EDSA
Marking the 47th year of PSID, this year’s exhibit showcases 22 exquisitely designed spaces that showcase the beauty and cultural richness across six continents by translating the different cultural aspects into aesthetically and functionally designed interior spaces.
Exhibit-goers can have a taste of twenty-two beautiful countries and their culture, traditions, practices, folklores, art, architecture, and music and reinterpret them into exquisitely and expertly decorated spaces.
Besides from being inspired by their assigned countries, students are asked to take into account basic design principles and ergonomics to make spaces that not only look good, but are functional.
