Manila, the capital and cultural center of Philippines is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. Although the second most natural disaster-prone capital city, next to Tokyo, it is amongst the fastest growing cities of Southeast Asia.

A city planned by an American architect and urban planner, Daniel Burnham in the era of ‘City Beautiful Movement’, Manila’s character, although an eclectic mix of architectural styles, is distinguished through broad streets and avenues radiating out from rectangles. Reflecting its turbulent history and scars of wars are some bare remains, reasonably preserved or beautifully reconstructed historic monuments, reflecting American, Chinese, Japanese and Malay influences. Famed for its Art deco theatres, most of which are now demolished, Manila also exhibits Neoclassical and Beaux-Art styles in its streetscapes. Prominent Filipino architects such as Felipe Roxas, Tomas Mapua, Juan M. Arenello and Antonio Toledo fabricated most of the important public buildings of the city that we see today.

Currently, top architects in Manila are working towards creating modern, contemporary and earthquake resistant buildings, employing an age-old method used in churches and government structures during the Spanish colonial period in Philippines- ‘Earthquake Baroque’. Also, currently in focus is the restoration and renovation of historically significant buildings in Manila, with an aim to restore the city to its former glory and its beautiful prewar state.
