Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo

A who-knows-how-happily-married Diego Rivera commissioned this three-residence compound from Mexican artist and architect Juan O’Gorman in 1931. Jarringly Bauhausian for its time (especially in comparison to the surrounding San Ángel neighborhood’s mission revival gentility), it included separate buildings for Diego and his wife, Frida Kahlo, connected by a slender bridge (as well as a third dwelling for O’Gorman). Visits lead to interiors, showcasing Rivera’s studio and its fascinating collection of artworks, creative infrastructure, and amazing windows. Take time to wander the garden and pause to appreciate the property’s tableaux; then re-tox from all the aesthetic purity across the road at the San Ángel Inn, a gloriously indulgent hacienda bar and restaurant that takes you straight back to the country club—flawless margaritas and all.

Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo

One could spend an entire Mexico City trip visiting the homes of famous artists and architects, and an indispensable stop on a themed circuit of this type is the home studio of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. Now a museum, this site retains the feel of the space as it was when the artistic couple was alive. Objects collected by the artists, as well as some they made, fill the spaces, which are drenched with lots of natural light.

The interior isn't the only interesting aspect of this museum; the houses, joined by a bridge, were designed by Mexican painter and architect Juan O'Gorman.
