The Real Cost of Building a House in the Philippines

It is common practice in the Philippines to find a connection, a friend of a friend, a “compare” who would give us a “friendly” fee. In some way, people have a distrust of professionals – from salesmen to doctors, others would even go to the extreme of finding someone with less credibility to give their body an assessment.

Architecture Philosophy: Power Steering for Architecture

(Artists and Designers Secrets for Inspiration)

Architecture Philosophy, Philippines

Architecture Philosophy, Philippines

After the successful workshop in 2012, “Designing Architecture – Global, Green and Filipino”, Architect Ian Jay Bantilan of Bacolod City is presenting a Workshop that will enable designers to find the inspiration to finally bring the Project home. The Artists or the Architect’s philosophy acts as a frame that strengthens his work so that it stands out among the myriad art and messages that fight for dominance in our minds today.

As artists, we naturally immerse ourselves in shallow water and miss out the depth of meaning that our world holds. This Workshop is not just for architects, it can be useful to artists, interior designers to draw inspiration from.

If you are interested feel free to contact the United Architects of the Philippines – Student Auxilliary (La Consolacion College) 19122408616 or 433-3476. The Workshop will be held in La Consolacion College – Bacolod City on September 19, 2013. If you are an outsider wanting to participate in this event, please be sure to let us know before the time.

We have been at the forefront in the development of a society, albeit unbeknownst.

Thus, not many people realize the importance of an Architect.

The Architect’s role has always been downplayed.

Some put minimal value in what we do.

But ours is a call to serve,

to lead,

to build.

Whether other people realize the importance of our profession, it is clear that our service have a great impact in a thousand other people who will unknowingly live inside, around our masterpieces. This is what we are, what we do, and how we impact the world around us.

Philippine History of Architecture

Philippine History of Architecture

written by Arch Manuel Noche

The history and culture of the Philippines are reflected in its architectural heritage, in the dwellings of its various peoples, in churches and mosques, and in the buildings that have risen in response to the demands of progress and the aspirations of the people.

Architecture in the Philippines today is the result of a natural growth enriched with the absorption of varied influences. It developed from the Pre-Colonial influences of our Malay neighbor, continuing on to the Spanish Colonial Period, the American Commonwealth Period, to Modern Contemporary times. As a result, the Philippines has become an architectural melting pot- uniquely Filipino with a tinge of the Western.

Leandro Locsin, National Artist for architecture, once said, that Philippine Architecture is an elusive thing, because while it makes full use of modern technology, it is a residue of the different overlays of foreign influences left in the Philippines over the centuries: the early Malay culture and vestiges of earlier Hindu influences, the more than 300 years of Spanish domination, the almost 50 years of American rule, the Arab and Chinese influences through commerce and trade over the centuries. What resulted may have been a hybrid, a totally new configuration which may include a remembrance of the past, but transformed or framed in terms of its significance today. Read more of this post
