Energy Museum

FR-EE - Fernando Romero EnterprisE


The National Museum of Energy and Technology (MUNET) is one of the most important institutions to be formed in Mexico in the last fifty years. Its mission is to educate and initiate interest in young adults to pursue educational programs and career opportunities in the energy and technology sectors. FR-EE’s design draws inspiration from the forms of manifested energy at the macro-scale of galaxies and solar systems and the micro scale of atoms, neutrons and protons. Lines of energy converge within the interior void of the building to highlight and emphasize one of its signature experiences: a floating sphere lifted by magnetic force. This central void becomes the focal point of the site and the geometric origin of the design.
