A work of architecture becomes iconic only when it captures a spirit and an idea that is relevant to and valued by those who view it, inhabit it, and use it over time.
— Leandro V. Locsin

Good architecture is measured by the degree to which a design meets the sponsor's expressed functions, economies, and aspirations, and the extent to which its inhabitants accept, understand, and delight in its physicality and being. It is rooted in the designer's consciousness of its purpose, available resources, context, history, precedents, and the designer's ability to synthesize those myriad variables into a coherent, enlightened, and functioning whole.

Great architecture does the same, but is measured by the degree to which it is responsible, produced with integrity, goes beyond the expected, points the way forward, teaches us something new, and -- ultimately -- whether its lessons preserve value and remain relevant over time, context, and generations of the people who inhabit it. This temporal dimension to great architecture is in turn rooted in the visionary abilities of architects and their collaborators.

Leandro V. Locsin Partners are committed to the path of great architecture, regardless of the scale and scope of any project. This commitment arises from our belief in the singularity of a project's requirements, its context, and its aspirations. The firm seeks to promote a broad awareness of the natural and built environment, the value of professional integrity, and the importance of a process that creates great personal satisfaction and fulfilment for its clients, the public, and the firm.

We believe in great architecture for a better built environment.
