Consisting of 6000 square meters on 2.0 hectares of land this project is a joint undertaking of the University of the Philippines and the UP Alumni Association. The "Ang Bahay", as it is called by UP's Alumni, is a landmark in Quezon City where the facility is regularly reserved for receptions, exhibits and socials. The structure is passively cooled with a barrel roof of tubular steel structures.
For the U.P. Alumni Association the building answers its need for a permanent venue for homecomings. Moreover it houses facilities for educational, social, recreational needs of the alumni and the campus population.
The 1000 capacity conference and multi-service center consists of four levels. The facility has a convention hall, meeting rooms, exhibit areas, fitness facilities, a restaurant, banking facilities and a heritage shop. The huge stained glass facade depicts an abstract design by G.V. Manahan with homecoming as the theme.
This project earned the UAP Design Award for the Year 2000. The building was built during the term of UP President Emil Q. Javier and UPAA President Edgardo Espiritu.
