After centuries of absorbing international influences, the architecture of the Philippines 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.
