Meet the architect who dedicated his career to helping the urban poor

With his degree in architecture from the University of Santo Tomas, and diploma in urban and regional planning from the University of the Philippines-Diliman, architect Albert Zambrano could have applied his expertise abroad or in the high-profile properties of a prestigious architectural firm.

Instead, this son of retired teachers (his father taught drafting, while his mother humanities) and eldest of eight children has not only chosen to stay in the country, he’s carved his career around designing homes and other edifices for the metro’s urban poor.

The Estero de San Miguel Project, one of the projects architect Zambrano is part of, helped families who live in absolute squalor in Legarda Street, Manila find an affordable home that brings in natural air and sunlight, and has a rainwater harvesting system that gives residents access to a readily available resource for free.
