1342. The Philam Life Building, United Nations Avenue, Manila, The Philippines
I heard with sadness that the Philam Life building may be
demolished soon to build a condominium complex that will
replace this historic structure. This elegant international-style
complex that was built to respond efficiently to the local tropical
conditions with its airy facades and gardens includes one of the
best performance halls in the entire country and should be
definitely saved for future generations.
