In EDA's entry for the new COntemporary Art Museum of Buenos Aires competition, the design draws influence from the physical and historical contexts of Buenos Aires. Situated at a unique junction where various architectural styles converge, the museum incorporates local features throughout particular volumes of the building. Through stacking the galleries whose varied mass are conveyed through material and volumetric shifts, the theme of compression alters the perception and experience of the museum from the ground level, up. At the base, the building penetrates the site with seismic landscape implications. Green space is uplifted, establishing the Museum site as a sculpture park and revitalized sociocultural node.
