NOV & DEC 2009 FOREIGN LICENSURE EXAMINATION FOR ARCHITECTS

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announces that 146 out of 339 (43%) passed the Foreign Licensure Examination for Architects (FLEA) given by the Professional Regulatory Board of Architecture (PRBoA) in Al-Khobar and Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) last 26 & 27 November 2009 and in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Doha, Qatar last 02 & 03 December 2009.

For the first time in the more than 80-year history of the Philippine licensure examinations for architects (LEAs), the major Subject of Architectural Design and Site Planning was administered as a NON-drafting examination, signaling the long overdue migration of the LEA from a largely skill-oriented format to a substantially knowledge-oriented format, also making the checking of the LEA result 100% computerized, thereby fully complying with Republic Act (R.A.) No. 9266 (The Architecture Act of 2004).

The members of the PRBoA who gave the licensure examination are Architect (Ar) Armando N. Alli, Chairman; Ar Angeline T. Chua Chiaco and Ar Marietta B. Segovia, Members.

Why Architecture Matters by Paul Goldberger

Why Architecture Matters is not a work of architectural history or a guide to the styles or an architectural dictionary, though it contains elements of all three. The purpose of Why Architecture Matters is to “come to grips with how things feel to us when we stand before them, with how architecture affects us emotionally as well as intellectually”—with its impact on our lives. “Architecture begins to matter,” writes Paul Goldberger, “when it brings delight and sadness and perplexity and awe along with a roof over our heads.” He shows us how that works in examples ranging from a small Cape Cod cottage to the “vast, flowing” Prairie houses of Frank Lloyd Wright, from the Lincoln Memorial to the highly sculptural Guggenheim Bilbao and the Church of Sant’Ivo in Rome, where “simple geometries . . . create a work of architecture that embraces the deepest complexities of human imagination.”

Based on decades of looking at buildings and thinking about how we experience them, the distinguished critic raises our awareness of fundamental things like proportion, scale, space, texture, materials, shapes, light, and memory. Upon completing this remarkable architectural journey, readers will enjoy a wonderfully rewarding new way of seeing and experiencing every aspect of the built world.


"Why Architecture Matters reminds us that in a democratic capitalist society, the only sure guarantee that we will get good architecture is if we shake off our ignorance and start to take a personal interest in the design of our neighborhoods. Here is a succinct, lyrical and heartfelt book that celebrates the best works of architecture and points the way to being able to build more of it in the world today. There are so many guides to the world of art, so few to the world of architecture. This is among the very best."--Alain de Botton, author of The Architecture of Happiness (Alain de Botton )

"A beautifully written and generous meditation on the art of building that every aspiring architect should read."-- Witold Rybczynski, author of The Perfect House (Witold Rybczynski )

Reformat of the LEA Archl Design Subject

In October 2009, the PRC approved the PRBoA Resolution to REFORMAT the Architectural Design and Site Planning Subject (the "Subject"), which comprise forty percent (40%) of the licensure examination for architects (LEA).
Once officially confirmed by the PRC for administration in the January 2010 Manila LEA, the Subject will then be a NON-DRAFTING ("KNOWLEDGE-based") examination and will also be of the multiple short situational problem, multiple choice format (with sketching and calculations required but not graded). The Subject mode being superseded is a single long situational problem format requiring a manually drafted solution (considered a "SKILL-based" examination).
Once confirmed for the January 2010 Manila LEA, the future examinees shall be allowed to bring copies ONLY OF Rules VII and VII of the 2004 Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of P.D. No. 1096, otherwise known as the 1977 National Building Code of the Philippines/ NBCP to DAY 2 of the Manila LEA.
The said PD 1096 Rules could be readily downloaded for free at the Latest Publications section of the PRBOA website i.e. posted at the following dates:

a) 2009-12-13 Rule VII of 2004 IRR of PD1096/ 1977 NBCP
(or 2008-06-07 Natl Bldg Code IRR Rule VII);

b) 2009-12-13 Rule VIII of 2004 IRR of PD1096/ 1977 NBCP
(or 2008-06-07 Natl Bldg Code IRR Rule VIII) and

c) 2009-12-13 Correct Tables of Rule VII Guidelines.

Once confirmed, the Examinees may NOT bring NOR use copies of the Atty. Vicente Foz version of the National Building Code sold at the National Bookstore due to apparently material deficiencies in the text of some sections of the said publication.

SO NOW IT SEEMS LIKELY THAT THE EXAM IS NON-DRAFTING. WE WILL JUST BE WAITING FOR THE OFFICIAL APPROVAL OF PRC OF THE BOA RECOMMENDATION/RESOLUTION, BUT IT IS ALREADY ALMOST SURE. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!

Architecture Board Exam in Middle East

Many are asking takers in the Middle East regarding the design reformat which was already implemented there. Here are some pointers given by them in the ShoutMix. Many will really appreciate if they could give an idea of the questions asked in the exam.

from middle east:

colors+lighting

Columnatiojn adn intercolumniation! + temples

understand the TABLE on Section 7 and 8...the calculation of GFA,TGFA,FLAR,PSO,ISA,USA, Prohibited..at iba pa! signage...arceded and non arcaded!

"orientation din is the most impotant thing u shoul be familliarized with....the the orientation of the RROW."

"lahat nang sagot ay maaring tama! try to understand the behavior of SUN+WIND"

huwag magmadali sa pagsagot! masyadong tricky ang questions! sa una kala mo tam ka na pero kapag inulit mo tanong iba na ang hinahanap! be wise!

May Industrial, Residential, Commercial, Institutional at Site Planning subdivion projects ang cover ng design exams, lahat ng yan dapat alam mo.

At dapat marunong kang gumamit ng NBC rule7 & 8 kasi halos lahat ng tanung may depend sa laws. Kaya dapat marunong ka gumamit ng NBC.

"Kailangan mo pa din magdrawing sa A4 papaer para alam mo lahat ng itatanung nila"

Halimbawa....ilanpo ang terrazzo tiles na gagamitin sa sala.Dapat alam mo ang size palang ng terrazzo.

"Design Problem?Bibigyan kayo ng Project at sa situation na yun...doon nila tatanungin lahat ng details,setbacks...areas at approach mo sa design."

Actual Construction experience is a great weapon for the new format exam...Pang Architektu talaga at alam ang Bldg.Laws

"i-double check niyo yung mga sagot,and it's not impossible na pwede niyong ma-perfect yung exam basta may presence of mind and keep your faith to God."

"inalize niyo muna yung tanong and choose the best answer. then sa questionnaire muna kayo sumagot before transferring ur answer to aswer sheet,"

"construction book,and of course trust your experience and be familiarize sa law compliance alam ko kaya niyong sagutin lahat basta unawain niyo at"

sa mga magtetake ng exam i will advice you that don't memorize anything, kelangan lang ng extensive reading even magazines or other related

"read alot of docs with regards to ALE..all topic specially in history...."

structural..more on reading the plan..ilang rebars..ties.location of beam with respect ot column location..etch...etch

sa constrcution! sample umaulan? ano gagawin mo sa newly formed concrete?

"mga 25% ng exam makukuha sa rule 7 and 8, the rest ay sa actual practice"

"for example sa design, ano ang adjacent sa scrub-up room sa hospital?"

"ung exam ay 5 groups, 1) low to medium rise residential, 2) high rise residential 3) commercial, 4) institutional 5) special"

"me drafting part sa planning ung iplot mo ang lot based on given lot description at dun nakabase ang mga questions sa drawing na gagawin mo"

"spceially on min and maimum developmet potential ng isang lote..whre in most of us architect dont know..lalo na kung compliance sa LAW"

IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SHARE, PLS. POST IT HERE IN THE COMMENTS BOX. MANY WILL REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.
