About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Student, Soon-to-be Architect
Location Makati, Metro Manila/, Mississauga, Ontario
Introduction An alumnus of Colegio San Agustín-Makati, Paúlo's love for architecture started over a decade and a half now. Having been exposed to his father's career as an architect of more than 25 years, his interest for local heritage began when he was in grade school after browsing through a coffee table book of Jonathan Best's turn-of-the-century postcards on Manila's landmarks. Though he calls himself a conservative in dealing with his designs as he is influenced by the City Beautiful Movement and Haussmann, he is also influenced by the modernists locally and internationally such as Arellano, Locsin, Luna de San Pedro, Calma, Speer, Niemeyer, Van der Rohe, Burnham, Wright, Calatrava, among others. His love for Manila's grand old architecture pushes him to be a heritage architect as built heritage in the Philippines is rapidly diminishing due to the so-called "globalization". After finishing his architectural studies, he will go on and become the country's (and the world's) sought after architects in urban planning, heritage architecture, and innovative designs. He is now residing in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, in Canada.
