Practice

Blasco is a contemporary architecture practice that strives to express the poetic dimension and enrich contextual idiosyncrasies. We are dedicated in delivering professional commitment and quality regardless of scale - from modest rural houses to shopping malls at the heart of the city. 

Paul Blasco leads the practice with over 10 years of experience in the architecture industry, from designing, to detailing, to construction supervision. As the principal architect, he actively directs and supervises all of the designs. His involvement throughout the different processes ensures that each project remains true to its concept and objectives.

Prior to establishing his practice, Paul worked with the firm of the late National Artist for Architecture, Leandro V. Locsin. His exposure to several of the firm's built residences and resorts have helped enhance his innate talent and eye for design.

After Locsin, Paul joined the Singapore architecture firm, A+P GRP, for its Philippine office. His main work was the supervision of the 23-storey Bai Hotel in Cebu and the design of a 2-tower 21-storey mixed-use building in Myanmar.

Paul completed his Bachelor of Science in Architecture at the University of the Philippines - Diliman. He was awarded the Best Undergraduate Thesis and represented the college in the Archiprix International, a competition of the world's best graduation projects.

Occasionally, Paul contributes to architecture publications. The most recent of which is for Domus, a design and architecture magazine based in Milan, Italy. His essay for the magazine, “Crisis at the Fringe,” is an overview of the architecture in Mindanao, in light of the recent Marawi Seige and other challenges facing the underdeveloped island.
