PH Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale is home

“The City Who Had Two Navels,” the Philippine Pavilion at the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale in 2018, returns to Manila, the Metropolitan Museum of Manila said on June 11, 2019.

Inspired by the novel “The Woman Who Had Two Navels” (1961) by National Artist for Literature Nick Joaquin, the exhibition highlights two “navels” that are in constant dialogue: the forces of colonialism and neoliberalism as shapers of the Philippine built environment, it said in an announcement.

The exhibit opens on July 2, 2019 at 6 pm at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Complex, along Roxas Boulevard, Malate, Manila.
