Designed by Alonso de Garay, a recycled building in Mexico has attracted much attention from the wealthy after its transformation from a decayed structure. The residential building has a gorgeous facade, with windows that punctuate it and give it a checkerboard-like look.

The recycled building in Mexico is also interesting because it is home to a museum of plants. The architects behind the building hope that their ability to repurpose the building and turn it into an object of value can serve as a model for the rest of the city. The recycled building in Mexico is perfectly situated to be a catalyst for a wider public dialogue on waste and recycling within the Mexican society as a whole. This is surely a fabulous building that I would like to call home.
