Biomuseo is showcase for Panama's diversity

Friday, October 24, 2014

For more than a century, Panama has been known as the country where workers battled yellow fever as they cut the 48-mile canal that changed the course of global trade.

This month Panama opened another construction feat about a different link: the brightly colored, multifaceted Biomuseo.

Designed by Frank Gehry, it showcases Panama’s role as the last key piece of land in the Central American isthmus that joined North and South America nearly three million years ago — and the consequences it had for the world’s ecology.
