A collection of interior design schools in the Philippine capital Manila.
[Image via Flickr user calebpfk]Originally posted April 25, 2018 11:16:37In a city like Manila, you would never think of putting together an interior design class, but a lot of Filipinos seem to enjoy the challenge of finding an appropriate design class for them, especially in an era of urbanisation.
It is often thought of as a form of leisure and the Philippines is one of the most urbanised countries in the world, yet it’s still not uncommon to find a new design school open on any Friday.
While there are many more design schools across the Philippines, we decided to highlight the best of the best, because they’re so much more than just some random schools in a building.
We have included a list of the 20 best interior design programs in the country, and a brief overview of what we found in each of them.
If you have any recommendations for the next time you’re in the city, be sure to let us know in the comments below.1.
