The Nomadic Museum

The Nomadic Museum, built for the Ashes and Snow Exhibition which displays the work of Canadian photographer, Gregory Colbert, is a removable structure built mostly of bamboo.

The iron part of the architectural marvel is made partly of shipping containers, so when moved to another destination, nothing is left behind, and no extra structure is needed when rebuilding in the new location.

The Museum is constantly traveling. Its last destination was Mexico City, specially in the Zocalo, right in the middle of the historic centre of Distrito Federal.

The concept is a museum that, unlike others, is permanently moving around the world, going to the people, instead of waiting for the people to come to it.
