SPORTS infrastructure takes center stage in the 14th session of the online Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) national summit on May 19.
Multi-awarded architect Gerard Lico leads the discussion which will explore sports infrastructure, providing an overview of different facilities in the country.
University of the Philippines professor Lico led the team behind the renovation of the historical Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila.
He is also behind notable works on Philippine architecture and cultural studies such as Edifice Complex: Power, Myth, and Marcos State Architecture (2003) and Arkitekturang Filipino: A History of Architecture and Urbanism in the Philippines (2008).
For the PSC, the talk on sports infrastructure is an important component in what it wants to achieve with the online summit.
“We are elated for the chance given to us by Dr. Lico to share his breadth of knowledge and skills to our summit stakeholders on this important topic. The improvement of sports facilities has always been part of the goal to provide a better sporting experience to our countrymen,” said PSC Chairman William Ramirez in a statement.
The online PSC summit is aimed at taking insights of different sports stakeholders and using them as foundations in crafting a sustainable and workable short to long-term plan for Philippine sports.
The PSC said all data gathered from the web series will be processed and studied to create a new set of resolutions to be presented to sports leaders for action. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
