Triangle North of Manila

Ayala Land, the company that developed the beautiful Anvaya Cove, also has several malls in Metro Manila and in other urban centers all over the Philippines. In general, their malls are the loveliest and most architecturally interesting in the metro, as we've already seen with Greenbelt 4 and Greenbelt 5 in Makati City. TriNoma is their first mall in Quezon City and though I've already featured one of its fountains and the island Starbucks at its rooftop, this is the first time I managed to get a photo of its curved facade at the corner of Mindanao and North Avenues. I took this on a weekday two hours before the mall opened and the hordes of people usually found at this entrance haven't arrived yet.

Clever of you to get there first. Thinking like a true photographer!

James said...

That's the way to do it. If I wasn't so lazy I would get up early to take pictures.
I like the lines and curves in this shot.

im not fond trinoma's design esp that long wal parallel to EDSA. parang pinabayaan lng nila yung wall na yun. hehe

Jacob said...

This is quite striking. I've long been impressed with the architectural uniqueness of your Manila malls.

Curves in architecture are very restful to my eye.

I love how lush it is, those terraced gardens in the background particularly.

I should be more motivated like you!

Hilda said...

Uh, thanks for thinking me a very dedicated photoblogger everyone, but the only reason I was there very early was because I had to meet my friends who were picking me up in a coffee shop at the other end of the mall. :)

God bless you!

I like the curved facade and almost everything else. As I already wrote your contemporary architecture is really good, even for a mall!

Per Stromsjo said...

Curves in all the right places. I'll echo Lois, why can't we have a tasteful mall to look at?
