Art Deco in the Philippines brings into new focus some of the country’s important architectural landmarks built during Commonwealth years when the nation was experiencing a flowering of political, economic, and artistic life.
American– and European-educated Filipino Architects such as Pablo Antonio, Juan Arellano, Tomas Mapua, Juan Nakpil, and Fernando Ocampo led the place in modernizing and rebuilding the Filipino architectural landscape with Art Deco-inspired residences and public buildings all over the country. Among the Philippine Art Deco structures featured in this book are the Metropolitan theater, the Far Eastern University, the Tomas Mapua house, movie theaters and residences in the cities of Manila, Sariaya, and Iloilo.
