BIOGRAPHY
Leandro Valencia Locsin
Born: August 15, 1928

Silay, Negros Occidental, Phillipines
Makati, Philippines
Leandro Valencia Locsin (August 15, 1928 – November 15, 1994) was a Filipino architect, artist, and interior designer known for his use of concrete, floating volume and simplistic design in his various projects. An avid collector, he was fond of modern painting and Chinese ceramics. He was proclaimed a National Artist of the Philippines for Architecture in 1990 by the late President Corazon C. Aquino.
He was born Leandro Valencia Locsin on August 15, 1928, in Silay, Negros Occidental, a grandson of the first governor of the province. He later studied at the De La Salle Brothers in 1935 before returning to Negros due to the Second World War. He returned to Manila to study Pre-Law before shifting to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Music at the University of Santo Tomas. Although he was a talented pianist, he later shifted again to Architecture, just a year before graduating. He married Cecilia Yulo, and one of their two children is also an architect.

DICTUMS
“ Creating Architecture that is both modern & undeniably Filipino.”
-Leandro V. Locsin

"THE ARCHITECTURE OF MY COUNTRY IS A SYNTHESIS OF OUR SOCIETY. OUR ART OF BUILDING REFLECTS OUR PEOPLE AT A SPECIFIC TIME, THEIR ASPIRATIONS, TRADITIONS, CULTURE, ECONOMIC RESOURCES, TECHNOLOGY, ENVIRONMENT, CLIMATE AND ALL OTHER COMPONENTS OF THE PHILIPPINE SOCIETY, THIS RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ARCHITECTURE AND SOCITY IS UNIVERSAL, FOR IT EXISTS IN OTHER CULTURE BESIDES OURS. YET THE RELATIONSHIP HAS ANOTHER DIMENSION, IN AS MUCH AS AN ARCHITECT'S WORK IS THE EXPRESSION OF AN INDIVIDUAL, THE PERSON WHO PUTS HIMSELF INTO THE PARTICULAR PROBLEM THAT A STRUCTURE ADDRESSES, WHETHER IT BE A HOUSE, A BUILDING, OR ANY STRUCTURE DESIGNED FOR A PARTICULAR FUNCTION. IN THIS SENSE, IT IS THE ARCHITECT'S SUBJECTIVE VIEW OF A DPECIFIC CHALLENGE TO WHICH HE RESPONDS WITHA PERSONAL SOLUTION AND A PERSONAL STATEMENT."
