A THOMASIAN architect has been named 2020 Outstanding Professional of the Year in the field of architecture by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

The Outstanding Professional Award is the highest award given by PRC to professionals for their “excellence, competence and integrity.”

Daniel Go, the founder and principal architect of ADGO Architecture and Design Inc., was recognized on Dec. 17 for his 28 years of contributions to the architectural profession.

“I am deeply honored by the award because it’s not just an ordinary award, it is a
recognition given by the government […] I am honored because it was awarded to us
during the pandemic when everything is uncertain and a challenge,” Go told the Varsitarian.

The PRC said the UST alumnus was known for being extremely meticulous with details, “not only in his designs but in all aspects of architecture such as specifications and construction.”

“He is possibly one of the most recognized architects in the industry because of his persistence for excellence. His projects and the people he has interacted with can attest to his sincere love for what he is doing,” the agency said.

Go is a cum laude architecture graduate. He finished his studies at the University in 1989. He started his own architectural firm in 1996.

A decade later, he was tasked to design the Christ’s Commission Fellowship Worship and Training Center in Pasig City, which became the largest worship auditorium in the Philippines.

Among Go’s other projects were the BTTC Center in San Juan City and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-certified Brilliance Center in Bonifacio Global City.

Go is one of the youngest architects elevated to the College of Fellows of the United Architects of the Philippines.

He is also one of the first to be registered as an APEC and ASEAN architect in the country. Christine Joyce Paras
