 Ms. Mona and Soler Santos are the artists who designed the artwork which became the basis for the facade of the buildings in FEU Cavite.

The place is much cooler compared to Metro Manila and very windy .  Hence putting additional electricity within the building is minimized .Sustainable architecture is framed by the larger discussion of sustainability and the pressing economic and political issues of our world.
