Raizel Tiongson

Manila, PH



A graduate of BS Architecture from the University of Santo Tomas, Raizel is a self-confessed design junkie. Her passion for art and design was nurtured at a young age having grown in an environment where modular furniture were made and shipped out at such a fast pace. Perhaps, its what made her passionate about space and the things you can fill it up with. 

During college, she joined various college organizations which involved theatre acting and planning events hoping to develop her interpersonal skills and to also to learn other things she wouldn't have otherwise. Her extracurricular activities eventually landed her a role at the university organization, Mediartrix's adaptation of Chicago the Musical as Momma Morton. It also gave her the opportunity to be the Treasurer for a year and CFO for another of Architecture Network, a student-ran organization which pioneered in organizing nation-wide student symposiums with world renowned architects as guest lecturers. 

Currently, she's working for a local architectural design firm honing her skills on presentation, technical drafting  and detailing.  On her days off from work, she likes to meet up with a group her friend started out called the Contemporists Collaboration, which focuses on ideating and tying up with other agencies to help the urbanity of Metro Manila through architecture. She loves jazz, arts, colors, textures, breakfast and to surf and travel on the times she can get for herself.
