TABB Architecture studio shares with us their Contemporary Art Museum project, with their solution they are raising important question for the world of art exhibitions at the same time offering an entirely unique concept.
From the Architects:
What if we could merge all museums into one?
Exhibitions around the world within our hands. Imagine not only the artwork but the artist themselves personally sharing their artwork and theories with us! Picture bright spaces designed to unite people, emotions and opinions through art.
Puerto Madero, one of the most important areas in Buenos Aires, is the perfect place where visitors can take a walk, admire local architecture and get to know this beautiful city.
Visitors enjoy taking a walk by the wharf and having picnics with their families at parks and open spaces. This makes Puerto Madero a perfect spot to locate this innovative, technological and Eco-Friendly museum. Our reason for conceiving a museum in this area was mainly to offer a place where people could relax, admiring great artwork in a dynamic and interesting space.
HD Holograms, 3Dimensional projections and Full synchronization systems, just to name but a few, producing a unique art sensing experience. We talk about mixing “exceptional” with “connectivity”. Converting museums into the ultimate interaction encounter.
Who said we needed thousands of dollars for an exhibition? Art transportation, gasoline, time…? Not a problem anymore! Let us remotely share our work 100% pollution free.
We decided to lift up the entire museum so we could take maximum advantage out of green areas. The access lobby connects with a great esplanade where monumental art sculptures can be shown. Visitors have the option to enter the museum galleries immediately orto admire the view from the main observation deck while they grab something to eat.
We believe in fluid spaces. Visitors can easily get from one point to another, while the combination of open and closed spaces, landscape and art makes the tour a very interesting ride. People can decide whether to follow the art spaces or explore the sculpture gardens, galleries and different show rooms. There´s no established route. This makes a unique flow experience, jumping from one sensation to another.
