Ilocos visita iglesia in Bluprint Magazine
The latest issue of Bluprint Magazine, the design sourcebook, Vol. 1 2011, is starting the year with their visita iglesia featuring six churches: Sta. Maria, Bantay, Vigan in Ilocos Sur; Laoag, Sarrat and Paoay in Ilocos Norte; and the Palacio de Arzobispado of Vigan City.
As expected, the individual articles written and photographed by regular writers and photographer contributors, including me for the Sta. Maria church images and some architects, focus on the architecture and commentary of the effect of countless renovations and changes. The images are interesting also as these are rendered architecturally correct showing details, spaces and sections.
For the Sta. Maria church article, the images I contributed were taken in 2005 wherein one can still see some ceiling paintings on the side whereas now, these were painted over.
