Open international competition hosted by [AC-CA] international architectural competition organiser.

A Contemporary Art Museum is a building or space for the exhibition of art, usually visual art. Paintings and scupltures are the most commonly displayed art objects; however, drawings, collages, prints, photographs and installation art including other artistic activities, such as performance art, land'art, web art to name a few are also regularly shown. Contemporary art can broadly be defined as art produced at this point in time (now) or after World War II. Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata. It has a population of approximately 13 million (thirteen million), which makes it one of the biggest cities in South America - a cosmopolitan metropolis, known for its rich cultural life and is considered the capital of the tango. Being an important economic center, its architecture is a combination of different styles which gives it a unique architectural beauty.
