Contemporary Arts Musem of Buenos Aires

The project is located in the recently developed Puerta Madero and facing the Rio de La Plata. As a museum that is organized by conjoined volumes and atria, a system of fixed linkages was developed. Different movements among four-bar linkages and Kempe's multiplicators would produce parametric adjacencies of galleries as well as connecting walkways. The exterior is a resultant of these operations: a folded plate envelope with large east-west openings providing the axial Avenida de Mayo an uninterrupted view to the river.
