While the Art Deco movement was born in the 1920s, it flourished in Manila in the following decades, brought in by Filipino architects who were schooled abroad. The style signified a city in full swing with the rest of the modern world, and Manila counted itself as belonging to the sophisticated global capitals. Ivan Man Dy of Old Manila Walks take us to Art Deco locations in Manila, among them the Chinese cemetery, the Syquia Apartments in Malate, and the Far Eastern University.
