Title: Cultural Identity: Defining Philippine Architecture in Boracay's Resorts
Authors: Reyes, Alena
Advisor: Noe, Joyce
Issue Date: May 2013
Abstract: There is a vital link between architecture and culture, especially as more people and places become linked and connected through travels. Design methods and practices in the hotel industry have become practical and repetitive, displacing a true uniqueness that defines a location and a people. This tendency to conform and assimilate changes the dynamic of what can be truly a cultural learning experience. Culture provides a sense of identity, and architecture is one way to communicate and exhibit this. The Philippines has a great opportunity to showcase its rich history and culture. The Island of Boracay features a developed hotel industry, but further analysis reveals missed opportunities and possibilities for improvement in terms of architectural design and identity associated with the local Philippine environment and culture.
This research examines the relationship between resort architecture and cultural identity. It presents the historical influences and cultural dynamics in the Philippines and how it plays a role in the architectural design elements of the hotel industry. It addresses the influence of culture in architecture and how it manifests itself through architectural design. It describes how a location’s culture and identity can be incorporated into the development and design of hotels and resorts, and factor into the tourism industry. It discusses the topics of design elements and addresses the issue that architecture in the hotel industry can be and should be an extension of culture and character of the locality or country. In this case, the island of Boracay, Philippines.There is a vital link between architecture and culture, especially as more people and places become linked and connected through travels.
