Pablo Antonio was a pioneer of modern Philippine architecture. He was recognised as a National Artist of the Philippines in 1976.

PABLO ANTONIO

Antonio first came into prominence in 1933 with the construction of the Ideal Theatre along Avenida Rizal (now Rizal Avenue) in Manila.

 

Between 1938 and 1950, he designed several buildings on the campus of the Far Eastern University in the Art Deco style.

 

Antonio also designed the White Cross Sanatorium (1938) along Santolan Road in San Juan City, and the Manila Polo Club (1950) in Makati City.

 

Antonio also designed several other theatres in Manila, including the Life Theatre, the Scala Theatre, the Lyric Theatre, and the Galaxy Theatre. Only the Galaxy Theatre remains standing.
