“The ‘Biomuseo’ is a bridge towards a new architecture in Panama—dreamt and conceived for its people and their personal myths, for their epoch, their climate, their geography, and from its history.” — Erik Wolfschoon, Architect
Last week I visited Amador’s Causeway to capture pictures of a well-known kites festival. Even though I combed the entire area, I couldn’t find a single kite floating in the air. But no problem, out of pain and sorrow, I found joy. I was able to see the progress of the Frank Gehry’s museum known as a biological museum. It’s slowly but surely becoming the spectacular structure it was designed to be.
We are most fortunate in having a Frank Gehry’s building in Panama. I’m sure it will be visited and photographed by thousands of tourists from all over the world. This is how the building looks like at this moment—March 25, 2012 noontime. Here we go.

These pictures were shot with my new DSLR camera---Canon Rebel EOS T2i. I used the automatic Landscape Picture Style of the device. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.
This time I was able to see the bright colors of the walls of the buildings. Can't wait to see the building fully built and in full operation. Photo by ©Omar Upegui R.
