Intramuros Learning Sessions episode no. 42


Jose Maria Zaragoza (1912-1994) is a Filipino architect known for designing several edifices during the postwar era. His works include the Meralco Building in Ortigas, Union Church of Manila, and Sto. Domingo Church in Quezon City. While he made a mark in the Philippine architectural scene, there is a need to look into his prolific approach as well as the timeline of his significant body of work to define his creations.
