Casa Aztecalita by Juan José Díaz Infante was getting a little makeover. The restoration was funded by Pemex.
Juan José Díaz Infante created the structure in 1967 as a pre-fab solution to the housing crisis in Mexico. He was influenced by a trip to Disneyland a few years prior. The house was installed at the museum in 1967 as part of an exhibition, Man and Plastic. It's been there ever since.
