This space is the result of an interdisciplinary vision that combines the architecture of Ricardo Rivas, the engineering of Eduardo Molina Arévalo and the art of Diego Rivera, creator of the “El Agua, Origen de la Vida” mural and the enormous Tláloc sculpture that welcomes visitors. The mural was under water until it was relocated in order to preserve it. It is based on Russian biologist Alexander Oparin´s theory that water plays a vital role in human evolution. The imposing statue embodies the Mexica god Tláloc. The Cámara de Labdona by contemporary artist Ariel Guzik, is another great attraction, as it transforms the nearby water tank sounds in acoustic chants that replicate throughout the space.
