Mexican Culture in a Diamond

Standard

The Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli (Anahuacalli Museum) is located in Coyoacán, in the south of Mexico City. The museum was conceived by Mexican painter and muralist Diego Rivera. Diego was motivated by his own interest in Mexican culture and collected about 60,000 pre-Hispanic pieces during his life. This museum, which houses Rivera’s collection, was completed after his death by architects Juan O’Gorman and Heriberto Pagelson, and Rivera’s daughter, Ruth. The building shapes like a pyramid and is made of volcanic stone, and it is an artwork by itself. The museum collection features almost every indigenous civilization in the history of Mexico. To me, the building looks like a diamond. Well, it may not seem transparent, but it is.
