Sunset Facade in Mexico City, Mexico
This building designed by the famous architect Javier Sordo Madaleno is located right in the heart of Mexico City’s recently called “Design District” down on Paseo de las Palmas. Its facade made out of Corten Steel, reveals a beautiful weathered look. When the sun is setting the whole building facade turns into a canvas that gets painted by the colors of the sunset, a beautiful and unexpected view in such an urban area.

Colonia Juarez in Mexico City is one of the oldest neighborhoods in one of the world’s largest cities. It’s filled with 19th century buildings, most of them designed and built by italian and french architects, some late art-deco buildings with strong influences from ancient mexican architecture and also modern and contemporary spaces. It’s quickly becoming the most hip neighborhood in the city with tons of new bars and restaurants opening in the area.
Walking to my favorite coffee shop through Colonia Roma, then riding a bike to a city spot where I can take pictures and just enjoy the view.
It’s surrounded by the city’s best furniture and design shops, you can walk around the area and see some great buildings and furniture from the best brands and designers.
Traffic will always be terrible at any time, so it’s better if you come by public transportation or walking.
Hop around the Paseo de las Palmas design route (you can see at least 5 design shops in less than 10 blocks.)
