9789715504355: Edifice Complex: Power, Myth And Marcos State Architecture

Gerard Lico provides straightforward historical narrative ad architectural criticism of the buildings within the prime site of Marcosian architecture, that is the CCP Complex, but he situates these within the terrain of tyranny that rerouted foreign aid funds and co-opted the architectural flair of the likes of Locsin, Manosa, and Hong.

Review:

"Covers the late twentieth-century phenomenon of a distinctive, but slightly demented, architectural aesthetic wielded by a 'conjugal dictatorship' to legitimize its regime and perpetuate its power. It is this relationship between power and architecture that provides the framework and context for this book." - Paulo Alcazaren"
