‘the new contemporary art museum’ in buenos aires by prechteck

austrian architecture studio prechteck has proposed a concept plan for the [AC-CA] competition that deals with the revitalization of puerto madero and development of the new contemporary art museum in buenos aires, argentina. the design of the building draws influence from contextual associations like waves of the waterfront, or setting sail for the fragata sarmiento, where viewpoints of the main parameter are highlighted.

a new horizontal layer known as the ‘art carpet’ extends calatrava’s puente de la mujer and connects it to the surrounding areas of the shore and the parking lots in the west. as the landform slopes up, it envelopes information shops and delivery areas, extending the urban fabric into the lobby of the building. the motions of tango and rhythmic movements of the argentinean culture are integrated as key components for creating a key parameter for the circulation system inside the museum.

a diagonal steel framework connects the facade of the H-beams to the main structure, allowing for a loading dock facing the main street, where storage and plant rooms on the lower floors can be completely closed off to a separate secure area. the incorporation of an aluminum louver system provides insulation from the sun and underlines its different elevations with a textile impression of the museum. a park/cafe/restaurant area and multipurpose space for special cultural occasions is placed 54m above ground to offer a spectacular view over puerto madero, therefore transforming the structure into an iconic cultural center for buenos aires.
