Practicing architecture in the Philippines is not just about designing on the principle based on Frank Lloyd's Wright's Form Follows Function. The principle is that the shape of a building or object should be primarily based upon its intended function or purpose. Well, not so if you're designing for a particularly superstitious client who believes in both the old Filipino traditions and the more recent Feng Shui. One female client insist on building wall fountains in her living room. She says that water in a fountain creates good chi or energy. No problem with that as aesthetically speaking, the wall fountain would add beauty and ambiance to the living space. But! The husband does not want to for he says the water receptacle would attract mosquitoes and make it its breeding ground. Guess who won?

  1. I don't think that they should have too much of a problem with a small livingroom indoor wall water fountain. The water should stay contantly moving, which doesn't attract bugs.
