Here's An Anvil-Shaped Museum in Mexico City

This is the Museo Soumaya, a building by designer FREE Fernando Romero EnterprisE, which has been recently completed in Mexico City—that's right, this ain't no render. Sitting in the city's former industrial district, it's surprising to see the structure spring up from the ground like some polished monolithic welding tool. It adds to the look that the facade is windowless, and made up of silver hexagonal aluminum tiles.

The Soumaya Museum has 60,000 square feet of exhibition space which will hold over 66,000 pieces of art. [FR-EE via Dezeen]
