The SCG (Siam Ceramics Group) together with the Mariwasa Siam Ceramics, Inc., one of the pioneers in ceramic industry providing eco-friendly quality designed ceramic tiles in the Philippines launched its pioneering project, called the “The SCG Gallery of Sustainable Environment” at the College of Architecture Library on November 28, 2013 in celebration of its 100th year. The exhibit runs through November 28, 2013 to November 28, 2015.
The gallery displays 50 new titles of architecture books, Filipiniana periodicals on architecture, interior design, fine arts and brochures/catalogs of ceramic tiles with tile calculators that benefit the students in helping and guiding them in their studies.
These donated library materials by Mariwasa augments the library collection for its users. An e-bulletin board for its collection supports the catalogs for easy access. The students, faculty, professionals and design enthusiasts can stay up-to-date on the latest ceramic tiles with the click of a button! The Mariwasa Siam Ceramics will update annually the book collections display as well as the brochures and catalogs. A two-year subscription of three Filipiniana magazines will also be shouldered by the company.
The tapping of resources from architectural firms, architects, building material companies is a project of the College of Architecture Library on a long term to augment the reference materials of architecture students.
