Mexico’s Boomerang Museum
Suspended by a precarious-looking combination of tensile cables and stilts, the new boomerang-shaped Musevi international art museum in Villahermosa, Mexico, appears to hover over both ground and water.
It’s been created by Mexico City practice, TEN Arquitectos, as part of a broader plan to revitalise the area by introducing a more social way of life to the city. The building is located beside a city park and provides a partial shade for the public amphitheatre below it. The hope is that it will attract international, art-based social gatherings to the area.
Accessed by a ramp and staircase, the museum is decorated with perforated patterns over a bright metal exterior. It also acts as a connection between two previously isolated lakes, creating a feeling of unity between city and nature.
