A wooden diagonal strut that supports the structures of traditional Filipino homes. Tukod also refers to the act of helping others rise from adversity.
Inspired by the philosophy of its founder, National Artist for Architecture Arch. Francisco Mañosa, Tukod Foundation supports the advancement of contemporary Filipino design, art, and aesthetics. They aim to educate Filipino people – especially the youth – to better appreciate our culture and embrace it as a way of life.
Their goal is to provide Filipinos with a sense of place and the pride and dignity that comes with it. Tukod’s projects help improve the physical environment of those in need, especially abused and deprived children.
