Posh Junk

Attractions, Retailers

Posh Junk is made up from scrap metal, old tools, leftover bits & bobs.
Some of the pieces were commissioned, some I got ideas from other peoples creations, and some are straight out of my head.
If you would like any of the pieces that are already sold, they can be recreated, but, as they are mostly from scrap, some of the materials used may be different sizes from the originals. Therefore each one is unique!

Biomuseo

Attractions, Tourism

Designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, the Biomuseo is his only work in Latin America and the tropics. The building was designed to tell the story of how the isthmus of Panama rose from the sea, uniting two continents, separating a vast ocean in two, and changing the planet’s biodiversity forever.

The Biomuseo’s 4,000 square meters contain eight permanent exhibition galleries designed by Bruce Mau Design.

In addition to the main spaces, the museum includes a public atrium, a space for temporary exhibitions, a shop, a cafe, and multiple outdoor exhibits displayed in the botanical park.

The permanent exhibition is a combination of art and science that leads the visitor to experience a marvelous phenomenon.
