Owner description: Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the Biomuseo is his only work in Latin America and the tropics. The building was designed to tell the story of how the isthmus of Panama rose from the sea, uniting two continents, separating a vast ocean in two, and changing the planet's biodiversity forever.

It should be noted that the museum is not yet open for business. But I do hope that whatever exhibits are placed inside would more than make up for the horrible design of the building. Panama City does seem to have a history of uniquely designed building. (Revolution Tower comes to mind). However this design looks more like an eyesore than a starchitect designed building.

I really hope the exhibits are great.

It is very colourful and easily attract attention. But when look closely, it is far from finish yet. People said it should be finished by 2009 and now it is already 2013
