Buenos Aires Museum of Contemporary Art, Argentina
Buenos Aires Museum of Contemporary Art is a competition based project that looks at the Puerto Madero cultural district of Buenos Aires.
For the context of this project, the museum represents a series of spaces dedicated for the exhibition of art, usually visual art, both maintained and rotating. Paintings and sculptures are the most commonly displayed art objects; however, drawings, collages, prints, photographs and installation art including other artistic activities, such as performance art, land art, internet art are also regularly shown.

(2) Generate a discussion of ideas regarding the functionality of art and the typology of an exhibition space.
(3) Encourage the employment of design experience that mediates a diverse historic and cultural urban district.
