Philippines Building House

Most architects Philippines building house know the famous photographs and have marvelled at the subtle treatment of the ground plane: the apparently casual but carefully placed stepping-stones in the grass, the studied juxtaposition of semi-random slabs which makes up the nonetheless strictly rectangular path to the entrance, the yet more rectangular steps up to the front door, and the final, perfectly cut, smooth stone block of the doorstep leading on to the wooden platform of the interior Philippines building house.

The sequence of thresholds starting earlier with the garden gate and ending later at the hearth--is accompanied by a series of transitions from edited or remade nature to the full artifice of culture; from the raw to the cooked. I had assumed that this was unique to Japan until a recent visit to Korea, where I was shown traditional buildings Philippines building house ranging from palaces to humble farmhouses.

Nothing quite caught the refinement but much that a Westerner admires in that Japanese example was evidently part of a common tradition, doubtless connected with climate, with customs, and with materials and craftsmanship. Down the centuries Korea was the bridge between Japan and imperial China, so it shares cultural values with both, but only Korean architecture Philippines building house has had underfloor heating since the later stone age.
