Steph, that would be good. I know it would be very tedious but if it's for the sake of protecting what's left for the next generation, your brave move would serve its purpose and encourage more people to be involved in conserving our heritage.

A close colleague mentioned that UST really should put up HCS chapter since the UST admins/ board of directors are putting up gymnasiums, courts, etc. without giving much importance to the fact that the entire UST should be declared a heritage site.
well, yeah, goal ng UST yun onward 2011 kaya ang daming tinatayo sa UST ngayon, nagiging crowded na nga ang UST because of the new building being build around...

You may get call Heritage Conservation Society Secretariat

thanks poh!!! :)

There are other structures particularly in San Fernando, Pampanga that should be preserved. I went there last December for a writing assignment and man, the locals should be informed that their province is rich in culture and history.
madami talaga, ung mga old houses na iba... and also in angeles city, good thing there this center for kapampangan studies...

but I think that UST's move on continuous construction is very conscious on the kind of structure that they build... one example is the multilevel parking in front of the UST Hospital.. I believe that they have designed it to match the Main Bldgs architecture... though I haven't seen the finish product yet...

but I agree that UST should be a heritage site... that is why I would agree with Manila's city council on not allowing an overhead rail system along Espana Blvd because it might block the view of the university...
well, ung Multi level parking in front of UST is more like a modern structure to me, di sya mukhang ni match sa main building... and also the new building being build in front of USt library, ung student center, modern na ung dating nya, tinakpan pa ung view ng USt library from dapitan...

the Student Center is being built on the old Coop lot right?... it will be 3 or 5 storeys tall right?... is it finished already?... UST had planned that since 1999... to have the cooperative canteen still at the ground floor with student areas on upper levels...

UST even had a plan of buildng an underground parking beneath the football field of the Eng'g complex.. they are 2 of 4 projects by Fr. Pinto.. the other two is completing the 10storey Beato Angelico Bldg and the renovation of the UST Health Center (that buildng between Main Bldg and Hospital across Security Bank)... this was discussed to us when I attended the seminar for leaders of all organizations of UST...
nope, it not in the old coop lot, actually nung una dun sya talaga pero di na tinuloy because pag nag excavate daw sila dun baka maapectuhan ang main building kaya ayun na punta sa my harap ng library at sinira ung park at tinanggal ung statue ng nine martyrs!!! kaya ngayon madaming naghahanap kung asan na ung nine martyrs???

well, most of those plan is being build or done na like the beato building but they didn't make it to 10 storey, only 8 storey kase pag 10 mas mataas na daw sa main building yun eh di daw pwede yun, then ung sa hospital ginagawa na ngayon ung side nya which serves as a cancer institute... yun naman underground parking, di siguro na gagawin kase my multi level parking na...

yun ang nakakatakot sa USt na wawala na ung mga dapat i conserve... tinanggal pa ung nine martyrs... :)

Thanks again Juan for bringing up the question.

For those who would like to report any heritage sites within the Philippine archipelago that are "endangered," you may post pictures/captions on this thread and I will send the link via e-mail to HCS and other government agencies responsible for protecting our heritage sites. I will also take the time for make a follow-up call if needed and coordinate with the HCS secretariat.

Articles/ photos/ weblinks related to heritage conservation can also be posted on this thread.

For those who would like to report a heritage site in danger but would like to remain anonymous, you may send me a private message (via SSC) or through my e-mail address at [email protected].
so, if ever i'll post or report any site, they will do something about it???

HAA!!!!.. they removed the 9 martyrs!!!... dun pala yun... that structure would really block the Library's view... nyak.... all the while I thought they'd build that on Coop...so the UST Health building is being renovated now...

and about the underground parking... back in 1999, the multivel parking already existed... they just added one level now right... well.. they may still not proceed with it because of the possibility of floods..
yep, dun tinayo ang it blocks the library, 5 storey sya eh so takpan rin ang lib.. actually hindi ung ust health building, mismong front right side ng hospital ang ginagawa if your facing in front of the hospital...

then ung coop na giniba, gagawin atang open theater na lang...

Space, for instance, is a distinct feature of Philippine architecture.

"Look at the kitchen in Filipino homes," points out Manahan. "It is in our culture to have two kitchens–the dirty kitchen and the one inside which sometimes is also a dining area." Or the living room where Filipinos receive guests and "at the same time we dine there", he adds.
when it comes to space, filipinos are not into open spaces as much as possible lahat ng area nilalagyan ng kung ano ano...

and true that it is in our culture two have two kitchens, philippines lng ang my dirty kitchen...

The Paco Train Station located along Quirino Avenue in Manila was recently repainted, surprisingly restored by the city government and turned into a relocation action center. And thank God the paint colors were chosen carefully! It’s good to know that they decided not to knock it down:







nice!!! i like the color... :)

Wow! What a pity I missed this meeting. Gemma sent me to Bicol to survey the sites there and take photos for the calendar. Anyway, I just uploaded my rough photos from Albay and Camarines at http://photos.yahoo.com/ivanhenares

Please take note of San Jose, Camarines Sur which is a rare breed in the Bicol Region since it hasn't been touched by the parish priests. Let's endeavor to have this one declared since while I was going around, several of the churches were in the process of uglification.

In fact, the trend in Camarines Sur is to make the churches look like those of St. Peter's Basilica which is why the proposed altars look the same, the ceilings look the same and it seems only one person/group is doing this damage to the churches, convincing the parishes to accept their designs, the Naga Cathedral included. In Albay, none of the church interiors are untouched, including that of national cultural treasure Tabaco Church.

Within the next few days, the facade of Tiwi Church would have been completely plastered with cement with a huge portico covering it. Renovations will be also done in Sangay Church, Camarines Sur as well as Tigaon Church, the original tile floor replaced by granite at the cost of over a million pesos! The priest is trying to raise over P10 million for the renovations. As I mentioned in my blog, these are a waste of church funds since the renovations are not even essential to evangelization. And they have to ask for donations from the townsfolk. The only people who would be happy after are the contractors and the parish priest whose whims and caprices were satisfied. But they left irreversible damage to the cultural heritage of the town in their brief stint as parish priest.

It's about time we spoke up to stop the the uglification of Philippine churches. Thanks!

Ivan
nice photos you got there!!! can i grab some of the pics in your album??? :D
