Renowned architect Frank Gehry is making his mark in Latin America for the first time with his project ‘Biomuseum.’ The museum will be a scientific center for visitors to explore local ocean and land species that originated in the Panamanian Isthmus that had a big impact on global diversity.

The structure is currently under development and is already taking shape into what looks like a classic Gehry design. The Pritzker Prize-winner has added his unique signature of geometrical angular shapes and imbalanced lines.

Once completed, the 4000-square-meter Biomuseum will have eight permanent galleries, a public atrium, temporary exhibition spaces, a giftshop, cafeteria, exterior exhibits, and a botanical garden. Take a look at the image gallery below to see what the Biomuseum will look like once completed.
