Mexico may become one of my top travel destinations if Rojkind Arquitectos' redesign for the Mexican National Archive is ever implemented. Rojkind Arquitectos put a modern spin on the museum, which used to house one of Mexico's most notorious prisons.

What I like most about Rojkind Arquitectos' design is that the prison elements of the archives are incorporated into its creation. Brick prison walls mesh seamlessly with the modern walkways as an old watchtower is converted into a grassy knoll.
