You all know the faces of Zaha Hadid, Meis Van Der Rohe, Le Corbusier. Now, you know the ones that should matter to us, Filipinos. Memorize their faces so next time you see them, you do not have an excuse.
Merry Christmas to all these beloved architects who have given us the most valuable of gifts of their priceless buildings. Beautiful architecture is important to me. With that in mind, I want to say a prayer for them. I, personally, am so grateful for their contribution to the world of design. Yes, I said world. Their creations of beautiful architecture are, indeed, of global standard.
Now, let our gift to the world be to prevent the further disappearance of their work due to greed, deliberate destruction and incompetence.
