Thank you for the info. As soon as I have some time I will go there.
Hopefully I can go inside !

From what I see in the picture. The building lacks Filipino inguenity. Its just looks like an ordinary building.

Urbano dela Cruz said...

it was designed as an office complex for GSIS.

Im not sure but I heard that this building was designed by some Japanese architect who won a contest for it. It cannot compare to the graceful lines of the original gsis right beside Manila City hall (which luckily still stands). In fairness though, the terraced gardens in the area facing the ocean is quite lovely.
