The Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo was the home of the two famed Mexican artists in the southern San Ángel neighbourhood of Mexico City. The striking modern house, not far from Kahlo’s family home was built by Mexican architect and painter Juan O’Gorman. The house was a joint design project between the three artists, O’Gorman even had his own separate section of the house. The house is unique, not just in its modern design but also because it was divided into different buildings to allow each artist to have their own private area and studio but still be connected to each other. Rivera and Kahlo’s part of the home is connected by a rooftop bridge that is visually reflective of their relationship. The couple only lived in the house from 1934-1940.
The final stop on my Spanish road trip was Madrid and it’s the last post in my Spain travel guides!
