World famous architect designing museum in Panama

Frank Gehry, the world famous architect best known for the innovative Guggenhiem Museum in Spain, has designed a new biodiversity museum in Panama City.

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

The “The Bridge of Life” Museum will house exhibits that showcase the diversity of life at the crossroads of two continents. Permanent exhibits currently being developed include an exhibit focusing on interdependent systems in ecology, an exhibit with full scale models of extinct animals that once inhabited the isthmus, and an exhibit on the separation of the aquatic ecosystems of the Caribbean and Pacific Ocean. The museum is in a partnership with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, and will be the first international museum incorporated into the Smithsonian’s affiliations program.
