The Biomuseo, or Museum of Biodiversity, in Panama City is Frank Gehry's first project in Latin America. The building, situated on the mouth of the Panama Canal, is a colourful design of metal-plated canopies sustained by concrete columns. It will house eight galleries and tell the story of Panama's diverse biological culture and its global impact. Once finished it is projected that the 4000 m2 space will play a significant role in Panamanian society, culture and education. Here, one of the museum's exhibit coordinators, Darien Montañes, explains the work involved in bringing a project of this scale to life. www.biomuseopanama.org Follow Our Show!
