in detail

It is one of the first functional buildings in Latin America. It consists of four buildings, three studiohouses and a photo lab. They were designed and built by noted architect and artist Juan O'Gorman, according to the vision and ideas of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, who lived in the complex from 1934.

One house was the studio of Diego Rivera and another was Frida Kahlo's, hence they are also known as the Twin Houses.

It became a museum in 1986 and since that time it has promoted, preserved and disseminated the life and work of Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Juan O'Gorman. Note that it was in this house that Frida created the the works that would consolidate her as an artist: Lo que el agua me dio, El ojo avizor and El difunto Dimas. While Diego Rivera did most of his easel work here.
