Philippine Architecture during the Pre-Spanish and Spanish Periods
Pre-Spanish architecture in the Philippines mainly consisted of domestic structures, typically ethnic houses built by the early inhabitants of the islands. During the Spanish period, from the early 16th to the late 19th century, two types of architectural works were considered as colonial marks of that era - the stone house and the church. Architect and author Norma I. Alarcon traces the architectural development in the Philippines before and during the Spanish settlement. Illustrations of various structures are included in this book to give the readers a glimpse of the variety of designs of the period, along with the construction data, architectural features, and other structural and decorative elements.
