Filipino Style digs deep to describe the roots of tradi-tional Filipino buildings and home interiors. The ever versatile Filipinos have taken diverse architec-tural influences originating in the Americas, Europe, and southeast Asia, and have married these forms with indigenous architecture to create a unique style that can cope with the demands of a tropical envi-ronment. Filipino Style highlights the elements of his-tory fusion, fantasy and fashion that are at the heart of the Philippines.
