A feature which links Mindanao to the musical traditions of many Southeast Asian cultures, the Kulintang is a set of many individual instruments which play as one, the musician himself becoming part of the set. This traditional percussion set will resonate with many cultures in Mindanao, and using it as design inspiration will hopefully elicit more insights from communities about its significance. The design of the structure in particular has connections with Davao’s Kalumon Performance Collective, one of whose performers shared with the designer his dream of a Kulintang-shaped building. If built, it will also be an expansion of the vision started by Kublai Milan in his Agong House.
