Photos Of BSA #16: Sweetly Sharp Agave and Museum Design in San Luis Potosi

Happy Holidays! We’re celebrating the end of one year and the beginning of the next by thanking BSA readers, friends, and family for all of your support in 2022. We have selected some of our favorite shots by our Editor of Photography, Jaime Rojo, and we’re sharing a new one every day to celebrate all our good times together, our hope for the future, and our love for the street.

Not exactly a Christmas tree, but these agave plants were as exuberant and festive as you can imagine this May at the impressively designed former prison in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Now converted into the Centro de las Artes, the grounds and architecture of this severely geometric compound are centered around a panopticon that reminds you of its former us. Fortunately, its function today is dedicated to the preservation of Mexican history, modern art, and design – and starkly sharp external groundwork like this.
