Museo Soumaya in Mexico City - #honeycomb #pattern -

Emperor's New Museum | Museo Soumaya -

Museo Soumaya is Mexico City's new art museum, which cost an estimated $70 million to construct with this sinuous surface of aluminum panels in a hexagonal honeycomb pattern. The museum will be a contemporary home to an eclectic private collection of some 66,000 pieces: Da Vincis and Toulouse-Lautrecs, Picassos and Dalís, Riveras and Renoirs, religious relics and even a treasure of coins from the viceroys of Spain. A Rodin collection—the second-largest in the world, the largest in private hands—sits perched on the sixth floor, boasting works like "The Kiss."
