Three fifth year Architecture students from Silliman University designed Dumaguete
City booth for Buglasan Festival 2017 last October.
Cay Louise Kirit, Paul Konrad Hupa, and Jerrymar Jamilla designed a pedicab-inspired booth symbolizing “Byaheng Dumaguete.”
Kirit said that the idea came from the fact that Dumaguete is a gateway to many tourist attractions in Negros Oriental and it is also sometimes dubbed as the “City of Pedicabs” for having a huge population of tricycle drivers.
The “pedicab booth” was 4meters by 4.15meters wide and 3.82 meters high.
“We are thankful for this learning experience and the opportunity to showcase our Godgiven talents to our fellow Negros Oriental citizens,” Kirat shared.
Buglasan Festival, known as “festival of all festivals” of Negros Oriental showcases the diverse culture and tradition of all local governments of the province.
