Congratulations to the ACHIEVERS Book Committee who dedicated their time and talent to finish this book which was started 12 years ago by Ar. Ricardo Poblete!

Thanks to past Chancellor Ana Mangalino Ling for her determination to complete this book by mailing the pages back and forth to the COF members for their approval; for Corazon F. Tandoc and Maria Elena Carlos Cayanan who meticulously edited the biographies, making 5 pages of stories or enumeration into 500 words life story; to Benedict Hermoso for research of the works of long gone COF members and going to the site to photograph some projects; and to Chancellor Mon Mendoza for his relentless determination to publish this book this year!

We are also grateful to the current National Board especially to NP Beth for supporting this project of the COF.

This Achievers book is a compilation of the biographies and lifetime achievements of 80 distinguished members of the College of Fellows and 12 Likha Awardees of the United Architects of the Philippines. These Architects have been the backbone of the profession and the organization through their many years of practice and serving. It is with great pleasure and honour that we feature their significant works and invaluable accomplishments.

As you read through this rare collection of talents, you will be inspired by these remarkable professionals who dedicated their lives in making our built environment a better place for all of us.

To those who are striving to elevate the profession and achieve greatness, this is for you… so that others may follow.
