Legoland

Since I always take the cooler route through Glorietta whenever I walk from the Ayala Station to Greenbelt, this was the first time I saw this building: The Link at the Ayala Commerical Center. The last time I was out here, the lot that it's standing on was still part of the open car park beside the Makati Shangri-La. I have no idea when The Link was built or what is in it other than the restaurants and service shops which can be seen on the two lower levels. I like how it looks though, like it was built out of Lego® bricks!

Interesting arhitecture there, I see U enjoy buildings. They give a sense of security, maybe.

Quite often in live, we don't see the good things immediately when it occurs but when the time is right, we tend to appreciate it more.

Oops, I mean life, not 'live'.

I think I saw a bit of this building in a previous photo - I liked what I saw and like this a lot. Very intriguing!

It looks like a game where you're supposed to fill in the empty spaces. Very modern. I like it.

It is an attractive looking building. Is it really made out of legos?

Dina said...

It DOES look Lego-like! Hope it's not made of plastic. :)

Beautiful and unusual building. I did a bit of research but can't find much about who designed these linked buildings. I found bombings, mutinies and fires, but not the name of an architect. Could you help?

Very striking architecture, I like it!

lisasarsfield said...

It is hard to imagine where the floor starts and where the ceiling begins. I mean if these are windows they got to be long and super skinny. It makes for a nice building. Or I should say a different looking building.

I must admit that the architecture of this building is very interesting (in a good way). I've enjoyed getting caught up on your tour through this part of your city.

This series of modern architecture shots is fantastic, Hilda!
I've been at the Bangkok Shangri-La by the Chao Praya river, it surely belongs to the same hotel chain.

bfarr said...

Yes, I like the look of it too. It does look a bit like legos.

Perhaps it's made of concrete Legos. ;-) I think it's amazing how quickly some buildings go up. Or maybe you haven't passed that way for a very long time!

It looks very interesting!

Dear Hilda! I would like to pass to you a really pretty Portuguese speaking award. If you are up to accepting it - pick it up at my blog. I enjoy your blog!

Lisa Wilson said...

You're right! How interesting!

Vogon Poet:
I couldn't find anything about their designers and architects either. But give me a few days — I sent out a message to some friends who might be able to get the information.
