Camino Real Hotel in Mexico City. Architecture by Ricardo Legorreta, art by Mathias Goeritz, branding by Lance Wyman.
The delightful ‘Living in a Modern Way’ travels east from LACMA to the Peabody Essex Museum. Loved the airy installation and design mix, from Asawa to Lustig to Eckbo to Handler.
Mexico City’s most popular, Mexico City’s most Instagrammy, and now Mexico City’s newest museum: Museo Jumex (Hoo-mex), by David Chipperfield.
Next stop (this is still Day One of my trip) Museo Soumaya. Note the contrast in impression between the top two photos: it’s really terribly made.
I took thousands of photos in Mexico, and I’m just getting to looking them over again. Will be posting collections, building by building. First up is the Museo Nacional de Antropologica, subject of my Dezeen column on the museum experience this week.
Just went to see Renate Muller exhibit at R&Co. http://www.r20thcentury.com/exhibitions.cfm?exToGet=featured
I wrote about her in 2010. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/03/t-magazine/03remix-lange-t.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
