The Biomuseo in Panama by Frank Gehry is set to open its doors, almost 10 years after construction began.

The 4,000m2 cultural institution investigates the isthmus and the various species that inhabit the region and is considered a catalytic structure which will serve as an inspiration for the country.

It contains eight permanent exhibition galleries designed in consultation with scientists at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.
