The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

The Balmori building

The heart of the Roma district is found where the Alvaro Obregon and Orizaba avenues meet; located in this corner is the Lamm House, an outstanding eclectic mansion in which the family García Collantes once resided and is considered one of the most beautiful houses in the area. Today, this space is occupied by an important cultural centre that has interesting temporary exhibitions, a library and a restaurant. The Balmori building is located in front of this mansion, was constructed in 1922, it’s an elegant stone building that possesses a beautiful patio with a slender fountain. The ground floor contains several shops specializing in luxury items.
