DESIGN NAME:

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Art Museum

INSPIRATION:
It came from the cultural environment that's set at Puerto Madero and also the "Puente de La Mujer"by the Architect Santiago Calatrava.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This project searches for different experiences and visual conections through the museum tour. It explores its surroundings and only contemporary art allows it. It's a unique concept where it could only take place in a vivid cultural place.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The building has three exhibition rooms that can be divided into five exhibition rooms by sliding panels. One of these rooms has a height of 20m and it can host great works of art and sculptures. On the terrace, there's a restaurant, an auditorium and a multipurpose space. Visitors can get to it by using an elevator from the main lobby (without entering the museum) or they can get to it by the end of the main museum tour. The main architectural tour is done through ramps going up to the terrace. Or, the visitors may take the stairs or an elevator and visit each exhibition room in a random order.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:

TAGS:
Buenos Aires, Contemporary Art Museum, Museum, Contemporary, Art

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Our research for this project started with a local visit to the site and the city so It was possible to understand where the building is located and its surroundings. Also, Buenos Aires has great museums and we tried to adapt ours to this scenario. During our research, it was clear to us that Puerto Madero is a renewed Buenos Aires and our project tries to relate to that by offering a space to contemporary art .

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challange was to think of a building that would not ''harm9;' its surroundings and could also establish a conection with the "Puente de La Mujer, one of the main touristic spots of Buenos Aires.
