Arkitekturang Filipino: Spaces & Places in History CD-ROM


Arkitekturang Filipino CD-Rom

The architectural knowledge generated from traditional history is limited for Philippine architecture is reduced to a mere catalogue of style and descriptive cache of architectural typologies and taxonomies. With a limited disciplinal engagement and worn-out survey method , the story of Philippine architecture falls prey to the outworn and convenient formalism, disengaging itself from the tensions and contradictions generated from conflicting social forces and power relations. The latter determine the production, dissemination, circulation and reception of the architectural form and designed environment within Philippine society.

Arkitekturang Filipino: Spaces and Places in History is an attempt to present and express an alternative approach to understanding architecture. Contrary to traditional notion of architecture as a resulting object or product, this CD-ROM highlights the concept of architecture as a process, which takes root from its interactions with the society and natural environment.

Through the lens of five critical categories such as 1.) Architecture as Signifier of Places and Settings, 2.) Architecture as Adaptation and Adjustment to Environment, 3.) Architecture as a Process of Creativity, 4.) Architecture as Mode of Signification, 5.) Architecture as Purveyor of Order, Philippine Architecture is emancipated from the repressive grand narratives of diachronic periodization and the parade of master and masterworks to discusively deal with social, cultural and political issues.
