Nestle Museum, Mexico
Posted by Scott
"This is a new Nestle Chocolate Museum in Mexico City designed by Rojkind Arquitectos in origami style. When things of a chocolate museums an image of a house in the shape of a chocolate bar pops into mind, this museum is in the shape of origami and looks great. The museum displays Nestle’s chocolate products and now is welcoming visitors. It took 75 days to design and build."

The whole thing is gorgeous. I especially love how the lighting isn’t an afterthought and is impressive on its own.

I think Kraft foods should design a museum based on a Tonka truck.
It makes perfect sense!

Looks a bit like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. Especially in image 4.
Just waiting for the Oompas to show up…

In Germany also Ritter has a chocolate and art museum. Apparently they are collecting/exhibiting only squared art-pieces, precisely as the squared ritter chocolate bars.
I have plans on visiting it soon, more info at:

Really astonishing building I’ve seen popping up every now and then and it always amazes me.
Off course there’s Zaha Hadid’s oraganic shapes but this one has a similar effect only with more geametrical shapes.
I read something in my newspaper today that amazinly fits right inbetween those two. It’s the Litllehampton East Beach Café done by Thomas Heatherwick.
