PUB­LIC IN­TER­EST

DestinAsian - - THE GUIDE -

Metro Manila has been bur­nish­ing its art- and sci­ence-ori­ented in­sti­tu­tions as of late. Touted as a cen­ter­piece for the cul­tural district of Boni­fa­cio Global City, the BGC Arts Cen­ter ( bg­carts­cen­ter.org) takes in cre­ative spa­ces and a stand­alone theater be­hind a strik­ing geo­met­ric fa­cade, as shown here. Over at Rizal Park, the Na­tional Plan­e­tar­ium re­cently merged its 1975 ana­log pro­jec­tion with a dig­i­tal one to cre­ate some jaw­drop­ping full-dome shows. The nearby Na­tional Mu­seum of Nat­u­ral His­tory will open later this year in a 1939 neo­clas­si­cal build­ing, with a “tree of life” spi­ral­ing up the cen­tral court­yard into a glass-and-steel canopy.
