--- SNIPPED ---

Sy himself flew to Latin America to discuss an important project with Slim. The billionaires are collaborating on a galleon museum that will rise at SM Mall of Asia (MOA). As its name implies, the museum will celebrate the historical ties between the Philippines and Mexico—both former Spanish colonies—during the galleon trade (1565–1815) that shipped Oriental goods such as porcelain, silk, ivory, spices and other exotic goods from China in exchange for New World silver through the Manila-to-Acapulco trade route before being transported by land to Spain.

The SM Group of Companies in collaboration with Museo Del Galeón, Inc. held today the ground-breaking ceremony for The Galeon, enivisioned to be a worthy addition to the community of museums, to open in late 2015.

Acapulco Galleon Museum will be a cultural facility with an 8,000 sqm. Total exhibition space, featuring a full-scale reproduction of a magnificent galleon. Unlike all other galleon reproductions attempted before in the Philippines, the new museum bases its reproduction on a very precise set of naval architectural plan published in 18th century Manila.

“What was then just an idea is now fast becoming a reality,” said Hans T. Sy, president of SM Prime Holdings, Inc. When briefed on the project, Hans T. Sy graciously offered a beachfront location in the Mall of Asia complex as the site for the museum. The support given is towards facilitating the circulation of vital knowledge of the first globalization of trade and commerce, in which the Philippines and Mexico were polar points of activity.

Love that wide window on the lower half, but I'm a bit concerned with what kind of material they'll end up using for the dome. I never liked any of this company's previous attempts with a dome structure. Frankly, to me they all sucked.

I hope this one won't end up being a complete eyesore.
