The unveiling of the Ayala Triangle Gardens on Nov. 19 will be marked by an exhibit of abstract sculpture and kinetic installations and a Christmas-themed theater of lights.

Located at the heart of the Central Business District, this will be the biggest public landscape–20,000 sq. m. of well-manicured lawns, tree-lined pathways and Wifi zones powered by Globe–in Makati. The Ayala Triangle Gardens will serve as a tropical pedestrian corridor which links people coming from Legaspi and Salcedo Village to other offices, shopping centers and commuter stations.

Although this new public space behind Tower One will primarily cater to office workers, it also aims to be a haven for families. The transformation of Tower One’s backyard to a garden-and-events venue offering family-friendly programs highlights Ayala Land’s democratic streak that seeks to make the arts accessible to the public and appealing to all ages.

For its initial art show, Ayala Triangle Gardens will feature the sculptures of Ovvian Castrillo-Hill, daughter of renowned sculptor Eduardo Castrillo, and the site-specific works of Moralde Arrogante.

From Nov. 20 to Dec. 24, from Monday to Friday, 6 to 7:30 p.m, the garden will present three 10-minute light and sound shows every 30 minutes, created by light designer Voltaire de Jesus and sound designer Jethro Joaquin. The themes will feature medleys celebrating Christ’s birth, Filipino Christmas songs and community celebrations.
