cantilever this, cantilever that

Two years ago I blogged about the Boston Institute of Contemporary Arts building. It seems nowadays cantilevered buildings are all the rage. Now take a look at the Tamayo Museum by Rojkind Arquitectos and BIG. It has not one, not two, but THREE cantilevers. Goodness.

The viewing platform looks nice, but it’d so much more incredibly impressive if the museum was right next to a body of water like the Boston Institute of Contemporary Arts. Imagine the crazy experience standing atop the Tamayo Museum and looking down and seeing nothing but water. Instead, people will look down and just see a hill. Big whoop.
