Meralco Lopez building , Home to the country’s largest power utility company, the Manila Electric Company ( MERALCO) was declared an Architectural Legacy of a Philippine Artist by the Cultural Center of the Philippines ( CCP).

Mr. Raul Sunico together with PIA and UAAP members

The event also saw the members of the Philippine Institute of Architects , United Architect Association of the Philippines, Boysen Paint were invited to grace the occasion.

Mr. Manuel V. Pangilian

This is in recognition of the genius of the building ‘s architect , Jose Maria V. Zaragosa- Who was posthumously proclaimed National Artist for Architecture in 2015.

The massive building, his largest and one of his most iconic architectural masterpieces ,was the second building to be erected in the Ortigas area at that time and has stood as a prominent landmark in this commercial business district since its inauguration in 1968.

The 47-year-old structure is also poised to become a historical landmark in its 50th year three years from now in 2018.  Architect Zaragosa is said to have used the 1960’s brise-soleil architectural medium for the building design, where a series of vertical concrete elements installed as a concave curtain were ordered by monolithic concrete towers.

The building construction began in 1964 and was inaugurated in 1964 and was inaugurated four years later with the late Don Eugenio Lopez as Meralco president . It featured the largest suspended canopy in the country at that time.

These towers were designed like two people trying to support each other, with the bridge across the building as their extended arms and its concave facade providing it more stability .

This was affirmed by the late architect and architect historian – Benedictine Father Rodrigo Perez III, who noted that the 14-storey Lopez Building ” is slightly curved to give it more stability and to avoid the boxlike appearance of rectangular buildings and the ‘train effect’ of straight corridors. Tapering vertical sun-breakers enhance the gentle curve of the concave facade” .

The building has also served as a preferred events venue through the 1,010 -seater Meralco Theater , which had witnessed several cultural performances and milestone events.

Jose Maria V. Zaragosa earned his BS Architecture degree from the University of Santo Tomas in 1936 and a diploma in liturgical art and architecture from the International Institute of Liturgical Art in Rome, Italy.
