About This Book

Art Deco is derived from the exhibition in Paris in 1925 called the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes. Only modern art and design were to be shown and Deco works from many nations were displayed. The style took the world by storm and spread not only to all parts of Europe but also to America where it had the greatest impact. Although the Philippines is on the opposite end of the map, gifted architects came home from their studies or travels abroad and created works of art inspired by their observations but adapted to their own culture. Some of these works were their interpretations of Art Deco. In this publication, lovers of Art Deco record its presence in the Philippines. Prominent homes, structures and buildings in Manila and provinces, such Iloilo City in Iloilo Province and Sariaya in Quezon Province, are featured in photos with engaging narratives.
