Presented on Day 1 of the AUDRN International Conference/Workshop at Miriam College. Dr. Zialcita is inclined to argue, among other things, that Spanish Architecture in the Philippines is actually Filipino Architecture. Think about the Nakpil House in Manila.
Increasingly cyberspace has become a terrain where knowledge is stored, developed and promoted. Two archives have been opened recently. One is by Ateneo de Manila as an institution. This is the Epics and Ballads Archives under the patronage of Rev. Bienvenido Nebres SJ. This archive brings together collected epics and ballads from various ethnic groups from all over the Philippines. Chants have been recorded and can be heard. At the same time they have been transcribed and translated into three languages, and are interpreted contextually vis-a-vis their cultural community by expert specialists. Another archive was opened by scholars working for the Institute of Philippine Culture in connection with their ongoing Inventory of Heritage Structures in Manila and Metro Manila.The archive stores information on heritage movements in the Philippines, on pertinent legislation and visual documentation of the several thousand structures that they examined.
