The Jumex Museum and its architecture
Museo Jumex and its This particular platform was born in 2013 under the umbrella of Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo, bringing culture and art closer to all those interested in the subject. The building was the first design in Latin America by British architect David Chipperfield, who used domestic materials for its creation.
Here different exhibitions and research are shown to a variety of audiences, promoting interest in contemporary art.
