Juke is an architectural designer and a visual artist. He was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. He migrated to the US through San Francisco, CA and is currently based in New York City.


Juke works in an architectural, spatial, and object-oriented practice weaving in kapwa, a core indigenous Filipino psychology that is “a recognition of shared identity, an inner self shared with others” (Enriquez 2004). Kapwa becomes the framework in which he operates in, alongside cultural research and architectural methods to reclaim from underrepresented and misrepresented narratives.

Through his work, he attempts to deepen the way we understand one’s interconnectedness to their community, culture, place, environment, and history helping us navigate a course of healing from (colonial and imperial) trauma. His intent is to harbor feelings through mixed media and assembled installations borrowing from domestic and cultural images, spaces, places and things revealing the value in our history and celebrating the beauty of our living.

Juke graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture. In 2020, he co-founded NOMASAAU to create space for minority architecture students at Academy of Art University and beyond. He is an alumnus of Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California's Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP) where he worked at Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) as a housing development assistant project manager. He was an architectural designer at Haddock Studio. In 2021, Juke led Partial, a design practice working in space, objects and furniture. His first artistic project was a public mural in his adoptive home of Excelsior district in San Francisco. Juke’s latest installation was exhibited at Kearny Street Workshop’s APAture 2021: Embrace and continues to be exhibited throughout San Francisco.
