Overview

After centuries of absorbing international influences, the Philippines' architecture draws upon the Americas, Europe and Southeast Asia to create a style all its own. Adjusting these ideas to a tropical environment, Filipino designers have created a bold esthetic. Filipino Style gives an overview of the traditional Filipino house, the influence of foreign cultures, the environment's importance to home design, and finally the embrace of modernity. Insightful and beautifully photographed, Filipino Style provides wonderful design ideas from this lush island archipelago.
