My Pila (Laguna) article in SPACE Magazine

Magazine cover

My article entitled, Pila: Heritage Town, Heritage Architecture has been published in the latest issue of Space Magazine (August – October 2011 issue). This is under the Travel Files section.

The article features the many heritage structures of this Laguna lakeshore town, one of the province’s gems, a rarity wherein it still has an intact poblacion setting laid down by its ancestors during the Spanish colonial era. I traced its history, from its prehispanic beginnings and various transfers from its original location, now the town of Victoria to its present site.

There are also several photos of the heritage houses, typically, post Spanish colonial. However, a caveat though, four images that were supposed to be part of another article relating to Architectural Photography (Six Steps in Photographing Architecture) that was also published in this issue was inadvertently included in this article.

Get your issue at your popular bookstores and magazine stands.
