The building pictured here was built on the garden plots around what I believed was the old Mary's Immaculate Conception altar where commencement exercises were usually held. To the extreme left is the ramp that leads from the church grounds to the street below along the old Margate building.

The leaning building of UNEP. Designed by Architect Fajardo, this building sits on a floating foundation supposed to be earthquake proof. Built right alongside the old Philippine National Railroad tracks, the building seemed to lean closer toward the railroad tracks.
