A museum should represent the character of the region where it is located. For the Labyrinth we were inspired by the old haciendas of San Luis Potosi and created a central patio with labyrinth designs based on the organ pipe cacti of the desert. The stones used both for the floors and the façade are local and the design of the garden responds to the desert climate of the region.
