Museum without windows in Mexico City

Museum "Soumaya" is a six-story tower on a steel frame. The shape of this tower was created using the algorithm of a few simple commands. Ramps connecting the floors, but the atrium or light well, cutting through several levels, no. The tower stands on the five-story underground parking lot with a capacity which far exceeds the needs of the museum.

The Museo Soumaya is a private art museum in Mexico City. It is owned by the Carlos Slim Foundation and contains the extensive art collection of Carlos Slim and his late wife Soumaya, after whom the museum was named.

The museum holds works by many of the best known European artists from the 15th to the 20th century. It contains a large collection of sculptures by Auguste Rodin. It also holds Mexican art, religious relics, historical documents and coins.

The museum was founded in 1994. In 2011 it opened a new location which cost over $70 million to build. The building, a shiny silver cloud-like structure reminiscent of a Rodin sculpture, was designed by the Mexican architect Fernando Romero, who is married to a daughter of Carlos Slim.
