it wasnt cancelled..they are rising money to start to build.

The zone is deserted or in the middle of nowhere..it just at the end of the calzada (the main way of the city and the av. who splits the city in two), and its sorrounded by building and houses, incluiding the arts, visual, and architectural center of university of guadalajara.

The project wasn't cancelled. It wasn't even on hold. There was a possibility of canceling the project because of the location. They thought it'd be too dangerous or impossible to build a 180 meter tall skyscraper right next to a canyon on a seismic zone. Various architects, engineers, and city officials analyzed the situation and they concluded that the museum would not be at risk if built on that location.

Here's the exact location, about 8km apart from downtown Guadalajara. The 180-metre structure will stand next to a 500-600m. deep canyon.

I first saw this building in an architecture magazine... And thrust me, I LOVE this building It is in such a unique location, with a breathtaking view... The way the building stands like a monument for modern architecture is just amazing... Everything about it is beautiful That's all I gotta say But does anyone know who the architect is? Could it be Renzo Piano?
