based in new york and mexico, enrique norten/TEN arquitectos has unveiled ‘musevi’, a new museum masterplan located in paseo tabasco, mexico. suspended above ground from a central structural core, the void below allows existing avenues to remain unaffected while providing an additional elevated communal link between nearby lake vaso cencalli and the lagoon of illusions. the horizontally extended form encourages social gathering throughout the building and an amphitheater below the museum provides a unique destination with access to the immediate natural surroundings.

cantilevering over the water, the space allows visitors to reflect amidst the landscape while meandering through exhibition spaces. later phases of the masterplan propose three additional parks, gardens, street furnishing and environmentally sensitive water management systems such as wetlands. the ultimate goal is to create a revitalized lake front and collectively reintroduce a pedestrian way of life to the city.
