Location Makati, Metro Manila/, Mississauga, Ontario
Introduction An alumnus of Colegio San Agustín-Makati, Paulo’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 modernist movement both locally and internationally such as Juan Arellano, Leandro Locsin, Andrés Luna de San Pedro, Eduardo Calma, Oscar Niemeyer, Mies van der Rohe, Santiago de Calatrava, among others. His love for Manila's grand old architecture has become his passion, as built heritage in the Philippines is rapidly diminishing at the expense of "globalization". Paulo has left the Philippines for the interim to pursue his studies in architecture. He is now residing in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, in Canada.
