Synopsis: "The landscape of the US--meaning its cities, farms, towns and public buildings, its gardens, and its formal and informal spaces--is as varied as its people. For as long as we have evidence, our environment has been shaped by the hands and eyes of its many indigenous residents. Yet only in the past 20 yeas have we begun to acknowledge the diversity of the everyday buildings and spaces we all inhabit and to ask what they meant to their makers and users. The essays in [this book] stand as path breaking explorations of one important but unstudied portion of the American landscape--that created by Filipinos.... The essays...remind us that to construct a building or a city or a landscape is an age-old technique for constructing an identity. As our personalities and our experiences vary, so will our landscapes. It is that rich variety of answers to the questions What is a Filipino-American? and What is Filipino-American architecture. That you will read here." --Dell Upton
