and no I’m not being sarcastic. There’s a bunch of topics that we failed to touch on during undergraduate studies! I wouldn’t have been able to know Neovernacular architecture during the Marcos era was a means of nation building.. and that the Manila Film Center was designed through the golden section (it was built to be the Parthenon of the Filipino Arts) I K R. So much information, so little time.
Good thing I was invited to see Revisiting Modernity an exhibit by the NCCA
The Golden Age of Filipino Architecture aiming to cater to the Great Malayan Nation
Now I want to get my hands on these books to see the original structures as they were!
- The Marcos Revolution
- Tao: Humanism at Work in Filipino Society, published in 1979
Too bad I’ll miss the discussion on Thursday 😥 I’ll be seeing the Chinese Pandas then.
As stars wane and die, new ones burst into the skies to become the new inspiration and guiding force of the Filipino.
