The city of Merida has a rich colonial heritage that has evolved into the cultural heart of the Yucatán Peninsula. Fusing together its past and present, Workshop architects have created the Filux Art Laboratory for the International Festival of Lights Mexico. The event space occupies a former colonial house. Many of the structure's historic features have been left untouched, serving as an antique backdrop for contemporary exhibition and art pieces. On the central terrace, intricate lattice around the exterior casts light and shadows on the building creating a light exhibit of its own.
