Tribute to the Filipino working class

Robinsons Land Corporation believes in the power of public art in transforming ordinary urban landscapes into beautiful, extraordinary places. 

How Bridgetowne — Robinsons Land’s premier destination estate — embraces this philosophy is evidenced by the unveiling of Lambat. Crafted by Jude Tiotuico, Miguel Aguas and Vito Selma, the sculpture pays homage to the tireless Filipino working class and serves as a sanctuary, casting its protective shade upon people and creating a space for children to play in.

Lambat depicts a fisherman and a fisherwoman casting a net mid-air, embodying the Filipino people’s grit, resilience and penchant for sacrifice.

Creating Lambat began with a series of sketches and design concepts. The artists drew inspiration from fisherfolk, who often face the unpredictable and harsh elements of the sea while working tirelessly to make a living.

Once the design was finalized, they worked with a team of skilled metalworkers who used various techniques, including welding and forging, to shape the metal into the intricate forms that comprise the installation.

Lambat joins The Victor by Fil-Am artist Jefrë Manuel-Figueras, who RLC also commissioned for Bridgetowne.

The Victor was inspired by the success story of John Gokongwei, who transcended his humble beginnings to become a towering figure as a Filipino entrepreneur, industrialist and philanthropist.

“We work with local artists to manifest our vision of an urban landscape that empowers individuals to live, work, play, and find inspiration. Art breathes life into cities, infusing them with culture, soul and emotion.

Just as with ‘The Victor,’ we aim to inspire and unite people, spark their imagination, and leave a lasting impression on those who see and experience it,” Mybelle Aragon-GoBio, RLC senior vice president and general manager for Robinsons Destination Estates, said.

Bridgetowne Destination Estate has been awarded Best Township Development and Best Township Masterplan Design at the prestigious PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards 2022.

This solidifies Bridgetowne’s position as a benchmark for excellence in integrated developments, setting the standard for future developments in the country.
