PROJECT:
The program for this international ideas competition challenges participants to design a new Contemporary Design Museum to house a collection of contemporary designs by both Mexican and International designers. The proposed Museum's collection will cover an exciting range from product, industrial, graphic, fashion to architectural design. 

The proposed Museum should explore the role of Museum today and the relevance, expectation and possility for an inspirational space where visitors can comfortably engage with design and architecture through the exhibits and space in itself.

The Museum design should apply and encourage the use of ecological and sustainable design principles where possible.


Museum Design Size: Open to participants. 
Plot Size: 9300m2 (approximately perimeter of 406m)

SPECIAL CONDITIONS
Access to the Museum must satisfy disabled access requirement standard.

 
COMMENTARY:
It is the organiser's intention for this general stage competition to be as design constraints free as possible to allow competitors' ideas for the chosen site and designs to be as creative and test the boundaries of what is possible. However exciting and challenging the creative opportunity presented within such few parameters may be, it is equally important that any proposal exhibit an amount of functionality and viability.
