¡Bienvenidos a CDMX!
As a homage to Mexico's capital city, MiniWorld 3D brings the most complete collection of its landmarks and famous buildings! This project is huge so we'll break it in parts, each containing a few buildings following a theme.
Part 5 are Modern structures that challenge what a building looks like and dwelve into the sculptural and artistic side of architecture. This part includes the Soumaya Museum and Twin Towers (Residencial del Bosque) in Polanco, and the Torres de Satélite.
The Museo Soumaya opened in 2011, designed by architect Fernando Romero. It is a non-profit, private museum that has one of the largest and most important collections of historical art in Mexico, from pre-Hispanic art to European masters. It has a unique shape and is covered in hexagonal aluminum plates.
The twin towers of Polanco, officially named "Residencial Del Bosque" were designed by archtect César Pelli, author of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, hence the resemblance. They were finished in 1996 and are 128 m tall.
Lastly, the Torres de Satélite are some of the first large-scale urban sculptures in Mexico. Desgined by renowned Mexican architect Luis Barragán, painter Jesús Reyes Ferreira and sculptor Mathias Goeritz, they were unvelied in 1958. They are painted in primary colors and white, and the tallest is 52 m.

Note that all the models in the Mexico City series are in scale to each other, so you can compare their heights and sizes!
MiniWorld 3D is happy to bring these models to life and a smile to all residents of Mexico City! MiniWorld 3D is the collection of 3D printable landmarks and models of the world! All our models are made from scratch by hand and brain, please give credit to all authors.
