The Frank Gehry Museum of Biodiversity (or Biomuseo), located on Panama’s Amador Causeway could open its doors as early as January 2014.

 Pilar Arosemena, president of the board of Foundation Amador called the museum "the result of a love story," referring to Gehry's second wife, Panamanian Berta Aguilera.

"The idea of leaving something to his wife through the Museum, began back in 1996 or 1997," he added.

He recalled that the project was discussed at a meeting of the Aguilera family at the opening of Gehry's Guggenheim Museum in Spain.

"The Biomuseo is a sign of love for his wife and the desire to leave a legacy to Panama and the world", said Arosemena.

Frank Ghery is a Canadian born architect, renowned for works around the world including the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, the highly controversial renovation of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO),  and the new Performing Arts Center at The World Trade Center site in NYC.
