Museo de la Biodiversidad
The Biomuseo, one of Panama City’s contemporary gems, was the first Latin American project by Frank Gehry. As befits the architect’s unusual and innovative eye, the museum is itself an abstract sculpture, daring and colorful, that seeks to reflect Panama’s natural riches by means of angled planes that form the roof and simulate a jungle canopy. The permanent exhibition is entitled “Panama: The Bridge of Life” and recounts how the Isthmus of Panama came to be, alongside the gargantuan impact it had on the Earth’s climate and environment, by dividing the oceans and linking the Americas. Outside the structure is a lovely park that serves as a living extension of museum architecture and exhibits.
