CONCLUSION

Architect Francisco “Bobby” Mañosa has taught us to explore the potential of indigenous materials here in the Philippines. In order to earn the respect of his colleagues, he modernized our very own bahay kubo and raised it further to greater heights. When it comes to travelling around the world, we should follow his example for evangelizing the magnificence of Filipino architecture. Many Filipinos also admire him for his knowledge and decades of unparalleled experience. Architect Bobby Mañosa’s vigour never fades. We should always keep in mind that we are Filipinos; therefore, we design in Filipino styles. In 6-7 years, if we become Architects, we must remember that in spite of all the works, we can still manage to be the kids’ best playmate, just like what Architect Mañosa does right now. He has also said that he never worked a day in his life, he just had fun. He shared a quote from a song in a Disney movie, “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun, and if you find that fun - the job’s a game!” Architecture to him has always been a game. And like all those games, you win some, and you lose some - but it’s always fun.

As long as we live, we’ll design Filipino. We should never forget Architect Bobby Mañosa’s remarkable stories, particularly

on how he helped in shaping Filipino architecture. Mr. Mañosa is now in his eighties yet we see Peter Pan in him, the Neverland hero who never gets old. In the years to come, the things that should be seen in us are the spark of energy, the good sense of humor and the child-like behaviour in every action we’ll make. Known as the most outspoken champion of an indigenous Filipino architecture, Mr. Mañosa’s nationalism, complemented with his kind-heartedness, makes his name much bigger than the landmarks he created, much enchanting than the world- renowned resorts he designed, and as revering as the churches of different faiths he built. “Architecture must be true to itself, its land and its people.”
