Turning fishermen into budding sculptors

By
BANGLOS sculptors with their mentor Rey Paz Contreras and Smart Public Affairs head Ramon Isberto

What a difference a day makes. In the case of a group of fishermen from a town in Capiz that was devastated in November last year by Supertyphoon “Yolanda,” 24 little hours were all it took to transform them from typhoon survivors into budding sculptors with works of art good enough to be exhibited and sold in the Philippine capital.

I was kept busy the past two weeks with some design work for Ayala Land Premiere’s latest offering in the Makati business district, The Garden Towers. I was very excited when I first reviewed their plans and offerings, and amazed at the thought that the property, which sits on a 9,000-square-meter plot smack in the middle of the commercial area, is going to have a considerable amount of green space. Lawns, terraces, poolside landscape and sky gardens that will alternate on the opposite corners of each residential floor, are probably the first of their kind in the country. If I could afford it, I’d buy myself a unit.

Trendy tribute to National Artists

By
FASHION show celebrates drawings and paintings of Botong Francisco.

It was a “no-holds-barred” event, as one participant put it, honoring National Artist F. Sionil José.
