“Ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makakarating sa paroroonan.”

One who does not know how to look back at where one came from will not get to where one is going.

— Dr. Jose Rizal


What is built heritage?

It is everything constructed 50 years ago and earlier that are reminders of who we are and what we have achieved as a people. At its core, it is all about people, and that is what the Escuela Taller is all about: equipping the Filipino youth with the skills to preserve the Philippine built heritage.
