Happy hunting tomorrow!

Happy hunting tomorrow!

Contemporary Mexico City recommendation: Kurimanzutto Gallery, currently showing the work of Adrián Villar Rojas. Designed by Alberto Kalach, whose Vasconcelos Library I will be posting soon.

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.

Commentary on the visual world by Alexandra Lange. Can include design, architecture, parks, movies, TV, books, kids.
