  Looking ahead but not forgetting where you’re from   Quezon City Hall “Architecture is subject to wide social, political or cultural influences. It reflects society and communicates the values of that society .” ( Hellman, Louis) Diwa ng Lunan is a concept that involves the designed environment. From the different trees to the man-made lake in the city hall complex, the vast importance of nature to the people is shown. Possibly one of the interesting concepts, they involve one's feelings, emotions, and memories. Instead of looking at a structure from a physical aspect, it  ponders on its emotional value. Grounds for formation of experiences and memories, the city hall is an example of an architecture which facilitates the flow of users. As a city hall, many would see it differently from other places. Why? Through the memories created by the users, they create a new image that makes it unique from the others. It may be foremost a government building where duties and responsibilities are performed, a meeting place for strangers, or even a place where friends hang out. Depending on the people, they create new ideas and beliefs which makes up the identity of the building. What makes its identity a reflection of the people and their culture? Pondering on its design, there is an evident strive to show its Filipino identity. In the observation of Arch. Leandro V. Locsin, Architecture of the Philippines is a residue of the different overlays of Foreign influence. ; What resulted may have been a hybrid, but the  blending was distinctly Philippine ; Older building traditions - massive supports, interior lattices and trellises, spacious interior layouts, the raised floors . Aside from the presence of elements that adapt to the tropical climate of the Philippines, there are several aspects which show its Filipino identity. Although the  building's exterior poses a formal approach in the design and proportions, an evident Figure 1.

From the layout to the choice of materials (Capiz, Wood), there is a strive to show its Filipino identity. According to Felipe L. Jocano, we do things because they are important values that we Filipinos cherish. He stated that the basis of the Filipino Value System revolves around Halaga , Asal , and Diwa . Ideas that try to explain the values from the person to the society; the person to himself; and the person to God relationship respectively. A Halaga in his value system, the importance of interacting with others show. Although these value systems may seem simple, they affect a large portion in the design of the  building. In different locations, several open spaces and areas could be seen. These courtyards and open areas provide grounds for communal interaction and gathering. The fact that the facilities have several benches that could seat several people shows that it is intended for interaction and communication. From time to time, this area could serve as a  place for gathering or meeting. From the simple to the complex practices, every aspect of one’s culture must be considered in architecture. Architecture stands as reflections and testaments to the culture of these people. The architecture of the Quezon City Hall tries to reflect on the culture and values of the  people. From the strive to incorporate Filipino designs and concepts to those that allow the practice of Filipino values, there is a strong presence of an identity. It tries to embody a governing body which efficiently serves the public, yet it tries to strongly manifest and reflect a cultural identity. An identity that is Filipino.
