Pa(ng) Labas: Architecture + Cinema
This book authored by Gerard Lico is doubly coded to encompass both the concepts of projected moving image (palabas) and the exteriority of architecture (panglabas). Both posit a sense of place, a sense of locus. The collection of images showcased in this book dramatizes the juxtaposition of architecture and the imaginary environment of the cinema, and at the same time, probes the transformation of Filipino space, architecture, and urban landscape, as visualized and mediated through the cinematic lens.
