This room is dedicated to the prolific painter-architect Juan Arellano, who is one of the architects of this building. He was a pioneering modern artist and an exponent of Philippine neo-classical and art deco styles. He was also an urban planner, involved in the zoning of Manila and the design of Quezon City.
Arellano is represented in this room by an early work, a portrait of his mentor Melecio Figueroa, and archival photographs of his architectural legacy. Complementing these are images of Manila by other artists, which include the Jones Bridge by E. Aguilar Cruz and the Old Science Building by Macario Santos.
