Start with a warm tropical climate. Add an abundance of exotic natural building material. And then let the cross currents of Asian design and aesthetics create a rich architectural alchemy of its own. The result? The exquisite homes in the Philippines, a perfect balance of form and functionality. "Tropical Living" explores this dynamic experiment with breathtaking photography and fascinating text. It examines diverse residential design styles in both the city and in the countryside, in mountains and at the sea. From a classic old-world penthouse in the Malate area to an Asian-fusion villa on Batangas Bay, over thirty private homes are captured in photographs taken by noted photographer, Andrew Chester Ong. It features an introduction by anthropology professor, Fernando Nakpil Zialcita.
