Ferrari, the super sports carmaker has opened a new museum right where Ferrari boss, Enzo Ferrari was born. The Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari is located in a 19th century house that was built by Enzo's father in 1830, in Modena, Italy. And the first thing you notice about the place is the yellow roof that is styled like a sports car.

The 5,200sqm mueso building is split over two levels. One level consists of a big white hall, where walls and floor transition to almost look like one clean room. It features curved translucent walls that let the sun in. Most of the main exhibition building is set below ground level, according to an Arch Daily report.
And it's eco friendly too. Being Italy's first geothermal museum, the building has special thermo-sensors that decrease energy use as cool air circulates in the summers.
The new museum has been designed by Future Systems and Shiro Studio. Dedicated to Enzo, the design of the space is on a futuristic note.
