IK Lab: Eco-Inspired Gallery in Mexico

Published May 24, 2018

Designed by Jorge Eduardo Neira Serkel, IK Lab is a new art gallery concept in the city of Tulum, Mexico.

The gallery was founded by Guggenheim descendent and local resident Santiago Rumney Guggenheim.

“The open air exhibition space is located at Neira Sterkel’s upscale eco resort Azulik, and eschews all elements associated with the traditional white cube gallery. Instead of static walls, IK LAB contains undulating cement surfaces that meld into overhead pathways and leaf-shaped podiums. Bejuco, a vine-like plant native to the region, fills in the areas not covered by waves of cement and forms the circular openings that dot the gallery’s slatted walls and ceiling.

Guests are invited to walk barefoot through the space to get a tactile sense of the built environment’s textures. The gallery’s cement walls mute most external sounds. This allows any noise produced during contemplation to be echoed and amplified, creating ambient auditory sounds experienced in tandem with the architectural design.”
