Church of the Gesu
|GFA:||2,000 square meters|
The Ateneo de Manila University’s Church of the Gesu sits on the highest point of the 87 hectare campus, with a commanding view of Bellarmine field. Its unique tetrahedral form seats 1,000 persons and contains two side chapels. The church features a cupola that is illuminated at night, and in itself is a detail that invokes Filipino character to the structure.
The church, with its strong geometric composition, stands as both an artistic and religious landmark by which future generations will remember the Ateneo. In 2017, the Church of The Gesu was bestowed the Haligi ng Dangal Award by the National Commission on Culture and Arts, it's first ever.
