Practice

We at Blasco Architects strive to express the poetic dimension and the ineffable quality of beauty. We believe that architecture has to transcend beyond reason, that architecture needs more sensibility, more expression, more character, more depth, more life. Moreover, 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

Paul Blasco leads the practice with a vision of creating architecture that is, above all else, poetic and ineffable. He has over 11 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 technical objectives, conceptual direction, and artistic vision.

Prior to establishing his practice, Paul worked for 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 one of the Best Undergraduate Thesis. His final project was the design of an ICT Business Incubator Building at the UP South Science and Technology Park.

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.
