BREAKING BOUNDARIES

The Museum for Architecture + Residences is a concept of cousins Carlo Calma and Ed Calma who were bold enough to invite the Japanese starchitect Sou Fujimoto to design their dream. This confluence of creative geniuses will be replicated with accuracy by Calma Properties, Inc through which they are joined by Carlo’s brother, JP Calma.

SOON, THE SHARED VISION OF THREE ARCHITECTS WILL ALTER THE PHILIPPINE LANDSCAPE OF ARCHITECTURE.

“Carlo and I would talk about a museum that could be a hub for cultural knowledge, exhibitions, archiving, and excessive cataloguing of the past, present, and future of architecture. It will also be a venue for architectural dialogue,” said Ed, the son of another luminary in the architectural scene, Lor.

The family has a property in the Nuvali district of the City of Santa Rosa in Laguna, where this first museum for design and architecture in the country can be built. But like true visionaries, Ed and Carlo looked farther and deeper. They saw a Water Gallery in the basement. They saw spaces for commercial and residential uses, and even unique apartments (Japanese hot spring public bath) suites.
