Last June 15, 2012 , I was invited by my friend and a member of Powerhouse Project to celebrate and feel the Lasallian Centennial.
And of course, I won't let this celebration pass without being involved, right? Because this is one of Lasallians' most important celebrations.
Why? First off it's because this is the blessing of their new building which is named after Henry Sr., also known as Centennial Hall.
Why is it named after Mr Henry Sy Sr anyways?
This building is named in honor of the Philippine retail magnate, the Henry Sy Sr. Hall of De La Salle University is the major building under the Centennial Renewal Plan, a long term development master plan to rationalize the whole University's campus setup and respond to the need for more space for search and learning.
The renowned architectual firm Leandro V. Locsin Partners designed the Henry Sy, Sr. Hall.
The building is likened to a "habitable tree", a concept that seeks to capture DLSU's continuous and growing role in the Philippines education,as well as institution's stand on environmental responsibility and sustainability.
This 14-storey modern and eco-friendly building,will house academic service units,study area,learning spaces, and select offices.
|Sign Post : First academic structure that will be rated by BERDE (Building for Ecologically Responsible Design Excellence) upon completion.
After the blessing, I got I chance to hopping and enjoy the view of the whole De La Salle University.
After this, i had a chance of having to meet other bloggers and the people of the strategic communications office.
Then after some bonding and freebies that they gave, me and Stephen go on to the Cultura Verde located at the Henry Sy Sr. Hall Grounds.
What is Cultura Verde? It is a showcase of talents of the Lasallian students from different schools.
It hosted by no other than the alumus of La Salle Red Lo & Fritzie Cabial.
Here some of the photos of the Cultura Verde.
After this; we ran again to the next activity which is located at Teresa Yunchengco Auditorium.
What is the event there? its the LasalliaNation.
What is LasalliaNation? It is a showcase of Lasallian talent and contribution to nation building.
Some alumnus perform on the stage like Gian Magdangal,Francesa Farr,Cookie Chua,Randy Santiago, Etc.
After that we ran again, to go to the Amphitheater to watch the awesome and fantastic fireworks.
The program ended in singing the song of De La Salle Alma Mater.
Especial thanks to Ms.Marge Liggayu, Mr.Vin Ello, Mr.Stephen Pamorada for the awesome accommodation.
Animo Lasalle, Until next time!
