“The Palacio de la Música is not only an architectural work of contemporary expression that harmoniously converges with Merida’s downtown context, but also hosts with great respect the Mexican musical legacy that revitalizes the Historic Center of the state capital with its cultural offer,” highlights the international electronic magazine Designboom, in an article dedicated to this art center.
The publication, with headquarters in Milan, Italy; and branches in New York City, and Beijing, China, emphasizes on its website and social networks that the site, built through a joint investment between the state and federal governments, combines a modern world-class design.
The article published on Sunday Sep. 2 , helps to frame and emphasize the historical buildings that surround it, some of which are part of the renovated Cultural District in the heart of the Yucatan capital, made up of museums, theaters and cultural venues.
The website, which has a reach of four million readers, underlines the architectural complexity of the Palacio de la Música, not only in the design, but also because of the great historical and cultural content that it houses, which makes it possible to position it as a major attraction for tourists visiting Yucatan.
“The building consists of four levels divided according to the program. The underground level presents an interactive museum that narrates the evolution of Mexican popular music, from its origins to the present” says the article.
At the street level, the open plan allows pedestrians to walk through its courtyard, in order to access the Concert Hall and the music archive, which contains the largest collection of Mexican music recordings outside of Mexico City. To place the visitor in perspective, a series of photographs show the architecture of the place.
Since 1999, Designboom has remained the most popular architecture, design, technology and art magazine, unearthing the best projects in these areas, as on this occasion it has done with the Palacio de la Música, for professionals from these areas, engineers and specialists, to know about the latest in urban development.
The publication is managed by Birgit Lohmann and Massimo Mini, who are accompanied by a group of specialists.
