International ideas competition that 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 designs.
The proposed design should explore the role of Museums today and the relevance, expectation and possibility for an inspirational space where visitors can comfortably engage with design and architecture through the exhibits and space in itself. It should also apply and encourage the use of ecological and sustainable design principles where possible.
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.
