Transformation

Lor Calma

2001

DETAILS

ABOUT

Calma conceived of this sculpture keeping in mind both the Bonifacio Global City and the country. The vision of transforming a military base into a city at par with the best cities inspired him to use glass as medium, a representation of a diamond in the rough. This material is complemented by other enduring materials namely granite and stainless steel.

The base of the sculpture is a pool shaped like the abstracted silhouette of the Philippine archipelago. The three towers, rendered in different heights, represent the islands of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, thus representing the transformation not only of the city but of the country as well.
