The Road Home: The Baguio Show Mart

Baguio Show Mart
Originally uploaded by Allan.

The Show Mart is this huge North American style mall on the hill above Burnham Park.

Thankfully the architecture is somewhat interesting, but it's still overly conspicuous up there. There is a big open shaft (atrium) up the center of it that is capped by tent-like sails on the roof. Warm air rises up the central shaft and draws air in these big balconies on the front of it. No AC required!
