One can easily overlook the Archivo de Diseño y Arquitectura after a visit to its well-publicized next-door neighbor, the Casa Luis Barragán. The Archivo, a museum and gallery, is definitely worth a visit. It is home to a vast international collection of masterworks of industrial design and bibliographical resources on architecture, both open to the public by appointment. On a walk-in basis visitors can view gallery exhibits and the Archivo Pavilion, a serene garden space that connects earth, clay, and plants. The Archivo was established in 2012 by well-known Mexican architect Fernando Romero and his wife Soumaya Slim.
