Amazing project!!! The location is perfect for this tower. Ive heard from it some years ago. Guadalajara will become the new Bilbao.

Guadalajara will definetly recieve many more tourists now. Hopefully the Bilbao effect will apply here as well.

It's a great tower/gallery. I'm very happy (and a bit jealous) for Guadalajara.

I like the design. I've read in other threads that it hasn't started jet, do you guys know when will it start? and how long will it take to finish it? When it's done I'm thinking about scheduling a visit, but I'll probably be there before that. And by the way, beautiful canyon!

I was lucky enough to see this area way back in the 80's. The canyon and waterfall are spectacular. What a beautiful project to compliment this place!!! I certainly hope this get built; and, if built, this would be a world landmark building, in my opinion.

The gorge is fabulous. Other than its interior, this monolith aka museum is a desecration to its immediate surroundings. It is Vegas in Mexico, to put it nicely. I hope this building does not get built.
