MANILA, Philippines - Anvil Publishing Inc. releases  Philippine Style: Design & Architecture, a new book that delves into the roots of traditional Filipino buildings and describes the varied influences that have resulted in the ever-inventive Philippine style. Written by Luca Tettoni and Elizabeth V. Reyes, the book features houses, interiors, and furniture; and also, explores main themes: ancestral houses, interiors and furniture that date from the period of Spanish colonization; and modern-day homes and designs that retained traditional designs.

Architect Dominic Galicia writes in his introduction, “This book aims to highlight the continuum of the Filipino design process: how, through history, the varied peoples of the archipelago have always strived to consult with Kahn’s Nature— and how a type of unique Filipino identity thereby emerged.”

The Philippine Style: Design & Architecture contains more information on Philippine architecture. It has detailed sections on antique furniture and organic materials, as well as chapters on the work on the modern-day designers and architects. It also features assessments of homes, home interiors, the ever-versatile Filipinos continue to innovate and create, both at home and abroad.

This book is available at National Book Store, Powerbook and Bestsellers.
