The Biomuseo is a museum of ecology in Panama City designed by Frank Gehry. It is the only building he has ever designed in Latin America. The spontaneous, layered exterior is typical of Gehry. Metal waves and wrinkles and large, open windows are marked with distinctive colors. The bright hues chosen are reminiscent of the Panama culture, and provide a bright contrast with the lush green grass on the banks of the deep blue canal. The location of the Biomuseo is also special because it was built in an area formerly controlled by the US that has now been rightfully restored to the country of Panama. The incorporation of local culture into typical Gehry design makes for a beautiful museum that anyone would want to visit.
