In the Mexican jungle, not far from the Tulum resort, in late November, the Azulik Uh May Art Center opened. The center includes a design laboratory, an art school, a gallery and a recording studio. The gallery’s program includes a display of works by world-famous artists, such as Tatiana Trouvé and Ernest Neto.

The building of the art center has a wave-like shape and is built from vines and synthetic concrete. It organically there are living trees and plants, and the 16-meter dome of the center was created on the basis of Fibonacci proportions. Classes in the school of arts and crafts will begin in the first half of 2019. The complex was built at the expense of the owner of the Azulik Tulum eco-resort Eduardo Neira.

“I can’t wait to see visitors who understand that in order to build in the middle of the jungle, you don’t have to sacrifice trees,” Neira says. “You can protect them and integrate them into the structure.”
