Architect Daniel Joshua M. Dado, a faculty of College of Architecture, Engineering, and Technology (ARCETECH) Department delivered a lecture in a National Convention for Architects, during the LEARN ARCHITECTURE REVIEW OUT-OF-THE-BOX 2020 or LARO20: Kahangturan on April 24, 2021 via Facebook live.

ARO 20, a bi-annual event of the United Architects of the Philippines-Graduate Auxiliary (UAPGA), aims to help, guide, and prepare aspiring Architects through a series of seminars in preparation for Architects’ Licensure Examination. He is one of the invited lecturers from USANT along with speakers from highly established institutions and review centers nationwide.

During the live program, Ar. Dado discussed the Basics and Fundamentals of Site Planning which, according to him, is a commonly overlooked subject in Architecture.

“I emphasized on how to be better learners instead of just being good test takers,” Ar. Dado said. He shared tips, tricks, and approaches in taking the licensure examination. "Read, and read, and read, and read, and then read some more”, as Ar. Dado quoted the wisdom of his father. “He taught me that unlike business that capitalizes on goods, we are in a profession where our prime capital is our ability to combine intellect and creativity, and it helps to keep one's self learning new things,” he recalled.

Due to the postponement of the Licensure Examination due to theCOVID 19 pandemic, he told the aspiring architects to continue learning and advancing their skills. He encouraged the future Architects to pursue their Master’s Degree. “To be a professional means to continuously learn and update what one knows,” as he emphasized what Ar. Rey Gabitan, his mentor, told him.

Ar. Dado is also a licensed and registered Master Plumber and is currently taking his Masters’ Degree in Architecture focused in Urban Planning.
