Backlash about Museum in the middle of Mexican Jungle

vyniildisk

When i first saw these pics i was in awe because it looks beautiful, it resembles a mayan pyramid and it will be very tall tower with underground chambers too

The museum will be built in an area that was illegally deforested to serve as a reminder of how fragile nature is if we don't do our part

The materials are wood, mexican yucatan clay and it overall not built to last forever but in about 50 years fuse with the rest of the jungle  when it catches up with the deforested area

It will be a space where science, nature and ARTPOP meet w us basic hoomans 

It will double as a research facility and it will be ready in 2024

 

It was trending yesterday for all the wrong reasons, some of them:

- Why not plant more trees in a deforested area instead of this

- The design doesn't mix w the jungle

- Visitors and their ecological impact

- Residual waters from the toilets are going straight to the jungle

- The architect is not mexican

- It's pretentious and the indigenous people in that area don't like it and they don't want to be disturbed

Etc, etc

 

thatz?

While it does look very interesting and beautiful and the idea of going to a museum in the jungle sounds amazing as well as the premise and meaning behind it, I do agree with some of the reasons as to why it also wouldn't be a good idea

Yeah no this ain't it. They could have replanted that area with that money instead of building a museum there and having people cause more damage to the area during/before/after their visits. Not to mention that building it requires construction work that could cause more harm. Go build a museum in a location where it's fine to build something, nature does not care about your #aesthetics.

The design looks great, but the last thing these areas need is massification. They should do it somewhere, out of respect for nature, indigenous people and animals.

Can people just sit down, leave this poor planet alone and die? Not everything is for us, stop using places like that for entertainment.

I think the biggest arguments against it are really the visitors and their ecological impact, indigenous people who live their disagreeing with it being built and the plumbing/pollution.

Does nobody catch the irony of making a museum dedicated to environmentalism, that entices fake woke jetsetters to fly in and out of Mexico just so they can post selfies from the "360 degrees selfie worthy rooftop area" with captions likes "I learned so much about nature & pollution today. Make sure to come here ", just to go sit in a gasoline-fueled SUV on their way back into the hotel?

Did you even read the "wrong" reasons? Because it doesn't look like you did.

Fair points but what about the place serving as a research facility too? :triggered:

What part of it being built in an already deforested area do you not get?

Built this somewhere else where it belongs. 

Do you really think travellers are gonna go down there, kiss the ground, pat it, and care about it?

Nah, we've seen how humans are, now even more during a pandemic. True colors are showing. 

People will show up, take pictures, harm the already harmed forest, leave. Repeat this for the next 50 years. Not only that, but they are not respecting the indigenous people's decision: THEY DONT WANT IT. 

While you might think it looks aesthetically pleasing, you're just looking for any excuse to make it seem ok. They could literally say "OH. AND LADY GAGA  WILL LIVE HERE FOR ONE WEEK ONLY! DONT MISS OUT!"

and you would be like OMG YAAAS GAGA! WE LOVE A NATURE INFORMED QUEEN! TAKE MY COINS XINATLI! EVEN MORE REASON FOR IT TO BE BUILT!
