MANILA | Thomasian Alumni Center [12f|mix]



Architect: Aidea Philippines Inc. / Arch. Abelardo Tolentino
Constructor: Hilmarc's Construction Corporation
Groundbeaking: February 4, 2010
Project Started: April 6, 2011
Features:
- Office for Alumni Affairs
- Offices for faculty/college-based alumni associations
- Grand Lobby with souvenir shop, coffee shop, travel bureau, and business center
- Grand Ballroom
- 16 mini auditoria
- Function rooms (meeting rooms)
- Hostel facilities with spa and wellness center

Quote:
One of the major infrastructure projects by the University for its Neo-centennial celebration is dedicated to its alumni. The Thomasian Alumni Center and Hostel is a testament that UST welcomes former students with open arms even years, if not decades, since their graduation.

The project began as a simple design competition, sponsored by architectural firm Aidea among Thomasian architecture students three years ago. The idea was to design a structure that would accommodate all alumni-related events and affairs. The site was to be located at the site of the old UST gym. It was envisioned to be the biggest of its kind by the time it was completed.

Among hundreds of proposed designs, the prototype of the group composed of Christian Darby Santos, Jesi Ling, and Weinard Tan stood out.

...

In addition, Aidea planned the building to accommodate vertical expansion, in case more spaces will be required in the future.

“The structures are designed to carry an additional 6 floors,” Tolentino said.

Quote:
The proposed site is the current location of UST's original gymnasium, which was the largest in the Philippines when it was built. Given its historic importance to UST, the gym's front and rear fašade will be kept and the entrance of the alumni center will be placed along Tamayo Drive.

The alumni center will have five floors and a mezzanine.

First Floor: Ground Floor will feature a grand lobby that would serve as the center's main converging point. A souvenir shop, business center, coffee shop, and travel bureau will all be located on this floor. There will also be a Mezzanine where the Thomasian Honor Gallery will be placed.

Second Floor: The center's Grand Ballroom will be located on the Second Floor for homecoming and other events could be held.

Third Floor: The Third Floor will be the location of the Office for Alumni Affairs and the offices of each Faculty/College-based alumni associations. There will also be meeting rooms on this floor.

Fourth Floor: The Fourth Floor will feature function rooms for smaller events and seminars.

Fifth Floor: Lastly, the Fifth Floor will have hostel facilities for accommodation services for traveling and returning alumni. This floor will also have a spa and wellness center.

I think this will be more than 5 floors. As for the architectural conservation, let's see how that puny retained entrance would look like in relation to the multilevel addition.

Totoo ba yung sinasabi nila na may height limit ang lahat ng buildings sa UST compound. I mean, they are following the height standard of the UST MAIN BUILDING, the one with the neo-classical design with a bell tower ata, not so sure (needs to review my humanities, hehe). So walang new building and dapat ipatayo na lalagpas sa height ng MAIN BUILDING na ito.

UPDATES

Alumni Center, mas matayog pa sa Main Building

...

Sa kasalukuyan, ang ipinatutupad na planong dinisenyo ni Abelardo Tolentino para sa Alumni Center ay aabot sa labindalawang palapag.

“Ang taas kasi ng Main Building natin ay approximately pang 11-story building,” ani Sta. Maria.

...

Ayon kay Jose Victor Torres, isang Tomasino at historyador, walang anumang batas o kasulatan ang nagsasabing bawal magtayo ng gusali sa Unibersidad na mas mataas sa Main Building.

“Prior to the Alumni (Center) is ‘yung Beato (Angelico) building [ang mas mataas kaysa Main Building] na umabot ng walong palapag… Nang panahong iyon, faculty member pa lamang ako ngunit batid ko na ang tungkol sa isyung bakit nga raw mas mataas ang Beato Angelico kaysa Main Building? Doon ko nalaman na wala namang pinanghahawakan na batas na dapat hindi tataas sa Main Building ang kahit anong gusali,” ani Sta. Maria.

Ayon kay Alarcon, kung may gusaling hihigit pa sa taas ng Main Building, mawawala ang pamanang lahi ng Unibersidad hindi lamang sa kampus kundi pati na rin sa sambayanan.

“Ang Main Building ay isang pamana. Ang pamana ay isang bagay na ating inaalagaan at iniingatan upang ipasa sa susunod na henerasyon,” ani Alaracon. “Nakalulungkot ngang isipin na ang apat na National Treasures ng ating kampus ay nasa ilalim ng banta ng kalikasan tuwing bumabaha. Sa ibang bansa, kapag may itinatayong gusali na may kinalaman sa isang simbolikong bantayog, isinasangguni sa mga stakeholders. Sana ganoon din ang gawin ng mga kinauukulan.”

Ang Main Building ay hinirang na National Cultural Treasure ng National Museum noong 2011 kasama ng Central Seminary, Arch of the Century at Grandstand/Open Grounds.
