Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar: Collecting Heritage and Architecture
Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is a 100-acre beach and mountainside heritage-inspired property. Home to almost forty original Spanish-Filipino colonial structures, the property showcases the vision of Jose Acuzar who collects, transplants and restores built heritage. Las Casas Filipinas is situated in Bagac, a small fishing village in the province of Bataan. Through the continuous restoration of built heritage, the migration and revival of traditional Filipino craftsmanship marks the significance of this architectural project. The workshops located in the property include stone carvers, wood carvers, terracotta sculptors, brick makers, painters, welders, etc. As part of Bellas Artes Projects’ mission, artists and audiences alike are encouraged to see the significance and discourse between contemporary art and heritage, and to explore ideas and reflections of their own.
