Abstract

The present paper attempts to clarify the characteristics of the modern Filipino style which was introduced by leading architects following World War II. The primary questions examined herein are as follows: 1) what is the background of the quest for Filipino style, 2) what are the sources of design connected with this tradition, and 3) how modernists designed structures according to their own design methods. Among leading Filipino architects, Leandro V. Locsin and Francisco Manosa are outstanding figures who embraced the possibility of a Filipino style that was based on their culture and gave clear direction to modern design.
