Neutral Studio in London has used the Museo Maya de América to develop a new milestone in architecture representation: the Museo Maya apps. Spearheading development of the interactive architecture genre, Neutral has expanded on their app platform with the launch of a full VR solution for both desktop and mobile platforms.
The new suite forms a digital museum guide and research tool. The apps enable users to experience the architecture of the museum and to explore its extensive collection of Mayan artifacts, providing them with options to view catalogue information and export for 3D printing.
The new MMA is among the most ambitious cultural projects under development in Central America. Designed by Harry Gugger Studio and over,under, it will house the world's most significant collections of objects, artifacts, artworks, textiles and knowledge relating to the history and culture of the Mayan Civilization.
Located on the northern edge of L'Aurora Park in Guatemala City, the museum will form the culmination of a cultural axis that includes the Guatemalan Museum of Contemporary Art and the Children’s Museum. This dense cluster of cultural institutions, in tandem with the large open spaces of the adjacent parkland, will become a new focal point for tourists and residents alike.
