Grass: Routes of a Nation. Bamboo Art Gallery - Ayala Triangle Gardens
The Philippine National Flag Bamboo Art Gallery at the Ayala Triangle Gardens last June 2013





Last June, in celebration of the Philippines Independence Day, the Ayala Triangle Gardens places an exhibit of different works of art inside its Philippines National Flag Bamboo Art Gallery. The Bamboo Art Gallery is placed near the center of the garden and near the Ayala Tower One.

Anyone who has visited the Art Gallery will be pleased to see what's inside it. It may look a like a flat flag design  from afar, but it is made on bamboo and it looks cool when you enter inside it! It is a 3 dimensional Philippine flag that have a lot of works of art inside it, explaining Filipino culture, history and some more additional facts.

But before opening the Bamboo Art Gallery there is a launching event, MAKEITMAKATI sponsors the event in the Ayala Tower One arch (outside the building, but covered by the arch where the fountain is placed). Here are some pictures of the event (credits to MAKEITMAKATI Facebook page and its photographers):

Did you know that bamboo was used to build military fortifications; soldiers fired from behind thick bamboo groves in the battlefield? -MAKEITMAKATI






























Even at night the Bamboo Art Gallery is still beautiful to see. Here are some shots during the night:

And of course there are educational benefits in constructing an Art gallery such as this as different students have visited the place with their respective teachers and school. Students have learn more about art, culture and history in the Philippines


Students from the Marcela Marcelo Elementary School from Pasay visited the Bamboo Flag Museum last July 4, 2013. They went together with their teachers to enjoy the mini tour led by World of Outbound.

My overall experience in visiting the Bamboo Art Gallery is great, as you can see different works of art displayed, our culture, our history and remembering our National Independence Day. The Bamboo Art Gallery is also impressive in its concept in using bamboo as their main material something you cannot see usual anywhere else.
