BUSINESS CHIC - Johnny Litton () - May 10, 2010 - 12:00am

After years of ground-breaking sketches for various establishments, the architectural genius Palafox Associates headed by architect Felino “Jun” Palafox Jr., recently unveiled a coffee table book titled “Architecture, Planning & Design: Palafox Associates The First Twenty Years.” The book, conceptualized by Jun’s lovely daughter Karima Palafox, contains 20 years of amazing floor plan sketches, images of commercial centers, expansive landscapes and skyscrapers all from the brilliant team of architects with contributions from Washington Sycip, Ramon Zarragoza, Richard Woolding and Gina Lopez. The evening ended with a pleasant birthday surprise for Jun Palafox from his wife Wilma together with their children Karima, Katrina and Philip Kahlil. Among those who were present in the gathering were Finnish ambassador Heikki Hannikainen, Ambassador Bienvenido Tantoco Sr. and Justice Conchita Morales. Here’s to more fruitful years! Cheers!
