Simplicity Redefined: Wilcon Depot’s Curated Display at the “Architecture of Silence” Book Launch is an Ode to Minimalism

March 8, 2024



The BluPrint Team

In honor of modern Filipino architecture, BluPrint unveiled its latest coffee table book, “Architecture of Silence,” which compiled serene estates, dwellings, and interiors designed by notable architects and interior designers in the Philippines. These projects not only embody innovation and contemporary minimalism, but also underline their profound connection to silence.

“When you talk about silence in architecture, it’s about minimalism,” remarked Rosemarie Bosch Ong, the COO of Wilcon Depot. “The colors are more subdued, and it’s really more of the content or the substance, that feature that [it wants to highlight].”

She emphasized the synergy between offerings of Wilcon Depot and the theme of silence in architecture. A single item, she added, can serve as a centerpiece, speaking for itself despite its simplicity. “It speaks a thousand interpretations. It elevates the concept of simplicity, basically,” she said.

Exploration of Silence

Meanwhile, BluPrint’s Editor-In-Chief, Architect Geewel Fuster, delivered one of the key points during the event. Delving into the nature of silence, she highlighted its potential to “either harm or whisper to the heart,” inviting guests to go on a profound inner search and a journey toward the extraordinary.

”We hope that this coffee table book continues to spark ideas and prolific conversations to those who not only inspired our pages but also to the future creatives who will continue to make remarkable contributions in our industry,” she concluded, encapsulating the spirit of the book and, at the same time, setting the tone for a continued exploration of silence in the field of architecture.
