BGC | The Mind Museum [oth]

The Mind Museum Taguig City









The Mind Museum to rise in Bonifacio Global City
9/28/2009 | Ayala Foundation


Science buffs and lifelong learners have something big and bold to look forward to in 2011. The Mind Museum, set to rise on the JY Campos Park in Bonifacio Global City, is a project of the Bonifacio Arts Foundation (BAFI). BAFI is a non-stock, non-profit organization supported by contributions from the Bonifacio Global City property owners.

The Mind Museum aims to be a world-class science museum offering its visitors the opportunity to learn about science by experiencing it through five galleries that present the different aspects and facets of science. The museum will present science in an entertaining and fun manner using over 150 interactive hands-on, and "śminds-on"ť exhibits and displays.

Before entering the main galleries however, visitors will first pass through the McMicking Hall, an exhibit area sponsored by the Ayala Foundation. The McMicking Hall showcases the Ten Most Beautiful Science Experiments throughout history, and is a perfect introduction to the rest of the museum.

The first three galleries - Atom, Life, and Earth"" will let visitors experience the tiny atom, the human brain, and the country's first T-Rex. The Universe Gallery hosts a mini-planetarium, as well as exhibits on gravity, extra-terrestrials, and the sounds of outer space. The piece-de-resistance however, is probably the Technology Gallery, which is the Mind Museum's largest exhibit area. The gallery's main feature is a 360o screen showing the Human Face of Technology. Through the different exhibits in the Technology Gallery, the Mind Museum seeks to demonstrate technology at work, and how we use it.

They did the groundbreaking this morning on-site... I passed by the site this morning when I drove my wife to her office in Net Square around 8am and they have tents setup there with some guests already... actually they've started their setup last night...

The Building Design



The space-age design of The Mind Museum is the brainchild of a team of architects from Lor Calma & Partners, led by renowned architect Ed Calma. The inspiration behind the building's futuristic, yet organic look was based off of cell growth and molecular structures.

Mirroring the functionality of nature, some features of the building's innovative and sustainable design include: slanted exterior walls to minimize the entry of sunlight, a specially curved roof for more efficient rain collection, and strategic orientation to utilize the shadows of adjacent buildings, all of which contribute to more energy efficiency. Ed counts the form and location of The Mind Museum as his favorite things about the museum; he believes that it has an interesting place in "a sea of box buildings and it celebrates the terminus of the [Bonifacio] High Street axis" – a combination that is sure to awe visitors.

Ed was drawn to The Mind Museum by the idea that it would influence a generation of Filipinos to see science and art in a different light. In particular, he hopes that the museum will help people to see the connection between the two fields, as well as remove the intimidating edge from science.

Main Galleries

The exhibition concept envisioned for the science museum is unique and Filipino. The Mind Museum will present science through five main stories, taking off from our culture’s resonance with storytelling. The exhibition spans the entire range of nature's elements, gleaned from the galleries, namely: Atom, Life, Universe, Earth, and Technology.

Visitors can relax in a glass-encased café that will give them a view of the Science-in-the-Park. Themed as Nature’s Artful Play, this will be an extensive outdoor park where children and adults can continue their learning experience from inside the museum to the inter-active exhibits in the park.


The Story of the Atom
The Strange World of the Very Small

The Atom Gallery is the gallery with the most number of interactive exhibits. It will contain the very elemental forces that are so familiar that we take them for granted – gravity and electromagnetism. It will present the counterintuitive quantum world which resembles nothing in the ordinary, everyday experience, yet serves as the basis for much of the technology we find so common and take for granted – computers, mobile phones, lasers, and many medical technologies.

Requested Donation: PhP 50 Million



The Story of Life
The Exuberant Varieties of Life

The Life Gallery is the gallery which feature’s the defining exhibit of the museum: The Human Brain. The gallery will feature the exuberance of a living planet in all its forms. It will feature the various habitats that nurture an astonishing number and kinds of organisms. This gallery will also feature the inner spaces that inhabit this life in the form of molecules called DNA.


The Story of the Universe
Its Beginning and Majesty

The Universe Gallery will showcase humankind’s wondrous fascination with outer space, and will include the mini-planetarium. It will feature exhibits that will show how all of life, as we know it now, found its atomic beginnings in the stars in space. It will enfold visitors in the fundamental elements and forces that are at play in the universe. It will also include wondrous images from the Hubble Space Telescope as well as a graphic history of humankind’s quest into other parts of the solar system.


The Story of the Earth
Nature Across the Breadth of Time

The Earth Gallery will feature the first T-REX exhibit in the country along with other unique exhibits that will focus on the earth and nature. Knowing natural history is the way we can educate museum visitors on how long it took the planet to give us what we now inhabit. The Earth Gallery will feature natural history from 4.6 billion years ago.


The Story of Technology
A Showcase of Human Ingenuity

At 680 sqm, this is the largest of all the galleries, and is the only exhibition space on the second level, overlooking the other four galleries. Its centrepiece, The Human Face of Technology – a 360° screen showing a constantly updated video of stories told by people about their favorite technologies and why they love them.

This gallery presents technology not as a mere tool, gadget, or industrial advancement but as means to flesh out human values, to help us become better humans. Thus, the gallery is divided into five major themes with each theme occupying a Node. The themes of the Nodes are: How We Live, Who We Are, How We Know, How Things Work, and Here to There.

Requested Donation: PhP 75 Million



Other Facilities

Halls and Rooms: Convergence Areas

Visitors will be welcomed by wide-open spaces prior to entering the five galleries. The Lobby, the Introductory Hall, the Ten Most Beautiful Experiments, and the Hall of Philippine Science all serve to initiate the visitors’ museum experience. The museum will offer the learning community venues for discussions, seminars, and workshops; these include the Theatre, the Mind Pods, and the Awesome Lab.


The Mariano K. Tan Hall

The Mariano K. Tan Hall will serve as the museum’s lobby. It will be an open space, lit and textured to lend a sense of excitement in anticipation of a unique adventure that the guests will experience in The Mind Museum. It will be an inviting place of first encounters with The Mind Museum staff and its guests. It will also be a rented area for special events, such as product launches, receptions, and the like.

Sponsored By: Family of Mariano K. Tan


Canopy Plaza

The Mind Museum's canopy plaza will be a center of activity, providing guests with a sense of arrival as they approach. Here, guests will begin their Mind Museum experience with patterns on the ground that stand as the museum galleries' wayfinding symbols. Also located here will be the Founder's Area, which pays tribute to the pioneering donors whose investments have ensured that the Mind Museum's story will become a reality.


The Theater

This will be the gathering place for groups and audiences of up to 200. This will be the venue for inspiring lectures of local and visiting scientists as well as presentations and shows that promote the public understanding of science as it reaches out to other fields of endeavour.


The Introductory Hall

A live presenter, a robot created by the Kokoro Company in Japan, will welcome visitors and introduce them to the over-arching philosophy and goals of the science museum. The robot will give visitors the basic information about the museum and the many possible ways they can discover and explore the story of science.


The Ten Most Beautiful Experiments

All visitors will go through a colourful and bright open space and have a delightful audio-visual experience of learning about the ten most beautiful experiments in science. These include how Sir Isaac Newton discovered that white light has all the colors and how a very shy scientist named Cavendish figured out how much the world weighed. These will be shown on LCD screens encased in silver metal columns, positioned to enhance a sense of wonder and an initiation into the very unique world of The Mind Museum.


The Hall of Philippine Science (Bulwagan ng Agham)

The Hall will showcase the country’s scientific contributions to the world and society. It will feature Filipino institutions, groups and individuals who have made an impact on science and technology.

rising property value? it is in close proximity to burgos circle (remember ondoy and the submerged megaworld retail strip) - which means there is a possibility this could be inundated by flooding (it had better float)

take note that mind museum site is 18m below serendra's road level accdg to topographical and grading plans

I don't think Ondoy will happen every year. Drainage system can be adjusted.

I agree. A lot of places got flooded during Ondoy. Even executive villages. Will that stop the value of these places from going up? I don't think so.

I think with or without Ondoy, dapat ayusin ng BESC ang drainage (?) problem in Burgos Circle. As in, dapat sa lahat ng area ng FB, wala talagang binabaha. People will feel so much safer to live and/or bring their business' HQ here. We are paying a lot per sqm, then same lang pala compared sa ibang area. To think na masterplanned ang FB.

When I was in the Philippines right after the typhoon, I ate at one of the restaurants in burgos circle area, I saw workers and they were actually underground or in those drainage tunnel fixing the problem. I forgot to take a picture of those people, but I did see them working on the drainage.

The Mind Museum at Taguig breaks ground
November 8, 2009, 3:53pm
Manila Bulletin

The country’s first world-class science museum is now set to rise in time for Year 2011 opening. Groundbreaking of The Mind Museum at Taguig (TMMaT) was recently held at the site – the super prime, crescent shape 12,000-sqm lot at the J.Y. Campos Park of Bonifacio High Street in BGC.

Estimated to cost P1 billion, The Mind Museum at Taguig is envisioned to be a showcase of “What we know, how we know it, and what we do with what we know.” Over 175 interactive exhibits of the museum will feature science facts and the process of discovery and their applications.

They will be told through five main stories, corresponding to the museum’s five main galleries and spanning the entire range of nature’s elements: Atom, Life, Universe, Earth, and Technology. It will be a place where science can be learned in fascinating and entertaining way.

Project proponent, Bonifacio Art Foundation Inc. (BAFI), with a Board of Trustees composed of individuals from Ayala Land, Inc., Campos Group of Companies, BCDA, and a representative from the property owners of Bonifacio Global City tapped some of RP’s best designers, artists, scientists and the world’s most renowned names in museum-building.

The space-age design of the museum is the brainchild of a team of architects from Philippines’ very own Lor Calma & Partners (LC&P), led by architect Ed Calma. The inspiration behind the building’s futuristic, yet organic look was based on cellular growth and structures.

Mirroring the functionality of nature, some features of the building’s innovative and sustainable design include: A curved roof for more efficient rain collection, slanted exterior walls to minimize the entry of sunlight, and strategic orientation to utilize the shadows of adjacent buildings, all of which contribute to greater efficiency.

Calma opines that the form and location of The Mind Museum at Taguig are most interesting as it is a place in “a sea of box buildings and it celebrates the terminus of the Bonifacio High Street axis” – a combination that is sure to awe visitors. Calma hopes that The Mind Museum will influence a generation of Filipinos to see science and art in a different light, to help them see the connection between the two fields, as well as remove the intimidating edge of science.

Apart from LC&P, helping ensure a truly world-class, most modern and effective learning facility are TMMat’s other prestigious partner organizations like: Singapore Science Center, one of the leading science centers in the world with 30 years of experience in operating a museum, is the planning consultant; the exhibition master plan and key exhibit designs is being undertaken by Jack Rouse & Associates (JRA, based in Cincinnati, USA), recognized as among the top ten museum designers in the world; Canada’s Cobalt Engineering is the museum’s engineering consultant [It has 37 LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited professionals]; National Geographic is an institutional partner through the access to its entire digital library that it is giving to the museum and the plan to make the Museum as the venue of National Geographic exhibits in the future.

TMMaT’s pioneer donors include: Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation, Ayala Foundation in memory of Mercedes Zobel de Ayala McMicking & Joseph R. McMicking, Ayala Land, Bank of the Philippine Islands, Del Monte Philippines, Delfi Foods Inc. (Goya Chocolates), Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation, Globe Telecom, Hapee Toothpaste, HSBC, IMI Group of Companies, JPMorgan Chase and Co., Manila Water Corporation, National Book Store, NutriAsia Inc., Philippine Associated Smelting and Refining Corporation (PASAR), SC Johnson and Son, Pilipinas Shell, Sony, St. Luke’s Medical Center, Tan Yan Kee Foundation, Timezone, Uratex Foam, and the families of Joselito D. Campos Jr, Mariano K. Tan, and Dr. Rolando Puno and Dr. Regina Busuego-Puno.

The consultants and designers who have helped include: Acoustic Analysis, Aromin and Sy structural engineer, B & C Design, Davis Langdon and Seah Philippines (DLS), DQA Environmental Design, Ian Campbell Project Management, NBF Consulting Engineers, Primesoft Philippines, R. A. Mojica and Partners professional electrical engineers, R. J. Calpo & Company engineering consultants, and Six Degrees Design.
