During a recent ceremony at Campo Marte in Mexico City, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto officially inaugurated a monument commemorating the Mexican Army's centennial anniversary.

Designed by architect Agustín Hernández Navarro, the monument integrates elements symbolizing the strength and work of Mexico's armed forces during the past 100 years and represents the architect's impression of a military cannon. The striking abstract shape incorporates multiple planes, slopes and sharp angles.

About 11,033-square-feet of RHEINZINK® prePATINA Reveal Panels installed by Ypasa, Mexico City, clad the monument's major vertical structure and are complemented with stainless-steel panels on the adjoining element. The monument is located along Paseo de la Reforma and expected to attract tourists.
