Interior Design in the Philippines: A Retrospect of Spaces and Culture
The evolution of interior design in the Philippines - from the earliest known shelter to the contemporary dream house of every Filipino family - is documented in this book. The authors Edith Oliveros and Raquel Baltazar-Florendo look into indigenous dwellings, colonial influences (from the Spanish, American, and Japanese), modern design, avant-garde, tropical design, neo-vernacular, international style, and sustainable design. This book aims to legitimize the discipline of interior design through research and empirical data, and enrich scholarship in the search for the Filipino’s identity and culture, recognizing the significance of interior spaces as expressions of culture, values, and aspirations.
